ALL eyes on Buenos Aries this evening as the drama surrounding the Copa Libertadores final continues to mount.
RIVER PLATE v BOCA JUNIORS (Off)
No point reviewing the game as (for a change in SA) there’s plenty of pieces out there to give a great picture of the story between these two arch rivals.
What is worth noting is the increasing pressure-cooker atmosphere building up in what was already one of the continents fiercest rivalries. The first match was a corker and led to the rematch destined to be played out last night but scrapped after tear gas and rubber bullets had to be employed as River fans attacked Boca’s team bus.
There’s all sorts going on behind the scenes with Boca Jnrs. Ultras' second in command being shot dead recently – the atmosphere on the streets will be matched on the terraces and no doubt on the pitch too.
It’s rare you’ll get too many opportunities to back cards in SA leagues so take the opportunity when you can although the fact the card line lies around evens for 10 cards speaks volumes .
Looking around the value definitely sits within the bet-builder style selections and in a game that ought to feature a bit of eveything, I’ve picked out 3 from Sky Bet.
