"Boca won't let River Plate decorate the dressing room in their colours"
Boca Juniors will not let River Plate decorate the dressing room in their colours as they don't want to risk security issues at the Copa Libertadores final.
Sources close to directors of Boca Juniors says "Boca will not allow River to decorate the dressing room like they did the last time they visited the Bombonera." The final takes place between the two teams for the first time in its history and the atmosphere at the ground is expected to be white hot between two clubs with a long and storied rivalry.
"They will speak with Conmebol and with directors of River, because it is understood that this could cause violence," the source continues. The source assures that they club are trying to avoid security issues and will take the precautions necessary to avoid trouble.
Boca finished their second session of the week with the Copa final on the horizon. They will likely repeat the second leg strategy they deployed against Palmeiras with Cristian Pavón, Ramón Abila and the Colombian Sebastián Villa with a midfield trio of Nahitan Nández, Wilmar Barrios and Pablo Pérez behind them.
The squad will meet and stay in Hotel Intercontinental from Thursday night, in the centre of Buenos Aires, with the final taking place at the Bombonera at 17:10 on Saturday 10th of November.
