Well well, tomorrow there will be another edition of the "superclasico" both sides with different realities. Boca wants to win to not lose the track of the championship and await for a loss of Independiente to reach the top. River wants to win to spoil the party for Boca, even though River isn't close to the top they won't waste another chance.

I predict a 1-1 draw, Palermo and Falcao to score.

I also predict Bueno coming into the pitch and getting a red card within 10 minutes after a brawl with Ortega.:evil:

EDIT: Confirmed line-ups and benches.

6-6 draw with the game being suspended 15 minutes before for crowd trouble.

El Diablo Rojo

Starting XI
Falcao scores River is up 1-0 at 23' of the first half.

EDIT: Ortega scores from a penalty 2-0, and almost the third from Falcao again.

El Diablo Rojo

Starting XI
Red card for Banega and the first half ends. River wins 2-0.

Boca seems completely lost Banega was the only one trying to do anything, Carrizo hardly had contact with the ball, even though that still would be hard even if Boca was attacking.(6)
In River good match of Ortega and Falcao, the kid Buonanote is brave but evidently lacks physical strenght yet.

El Diablo Rojo

Starting XI
And full time, River won 2-0. Either Ortega or Buonanote the man of the match.

On the second half River tried to humillate Boca with "olé olé" here and there and they did, however they couldn't get another player of Boca sent off, but Boca got full of yellow cards. Hopefully now the exit of the supporters won't have any trouble. Boca was totally clueless the whole match probably River should've scored 1 or 2 more goals.

And so the table for both teams now that the matchday finished. Independiente lost and wasted the chance of going farther on the top meanwhile Lanús and moves 1 spot in front of Boca, Argentinos Juniors lost the chance of sharing the 3rd place with Boca and River gets a bit closer to the top.
