Manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto, revealed just how important a Boca vs River Copa Libertadores final will be for the world of football.The Boca-River Copa Libertadores final is fast approaching next Saturday, manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto wanted to give us an idea of how he is feeling right now as one of the two managers for this historic game.La Bombonera Stadium will open its doors on Saturday for the first leg of a two-match final, which will give us an idea of the magnitude that a game like this has around the world.We are truly convinced that Schelotto is right about one thing, none of us are ready to live an experience such as this one and there is a lot of expectation building up around this final.There are even reports from renowned journalist Martin Liberman, that confirm Russian president Vladimir Putin, considering the options of possibly traveling to Argentina for one of the two matches.Barros Schelotto is already mentally preparing for such a monumental task, a game in which both squads arrive at the very top of their game and they should decide which of both squads is worthy of playing the Club World Cup against Real Madrid in December.But most importantly, this final will decide which is both squads is the absolute king of the American Continent.Un lujo hablar con un entrenador que pronto estará en España. Guillermo Barros Schelotto: “Es la final eterna contra el rival eterno” https://t.co/du2fTpZLIU vía @marca @BocaJrsOficial— Diego Pico (@D_pico_) November 8, 2018The Boca Juniors manager offered an interview to Marca, where he discussed the importance of this match: “Playing this final is a huge merit for both Boca and River,” said Guillermo.“Facing these two matches won’t be an easy task for either of us, it will be a very close couple of games.”“I have no idea if this will be similar to what happened between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in the two Champions League finals, but it has the potential to be very similar.”“Reaching a final like this is truly incredible… and it’s even more incredible having River Plate as the rival. In every single sense imaginable, from the build-up it musters until the importance that is a great final such as this one.”“We have reached this point, but we still haven’t won anything. Boca Juniors always demands victory and we have a worthy rival that always demands the same.”“This goes far beyond what we feel and any expectation, imagining what it would be like is very complicated because it’s never happened before. The fact that it’s a Boca-River Copa Libertadores final is very special indeed,” he added.Match Preview: River Plate vs Boca Juniors Boro Tanchev – September 1, 2019 It is time for one of the most intense derby games in the world, as River Plate and Boca Juniors go head-to-head tonight at 22:00 (CET).Habla Guillermo Barros Schelotto en la previa de la primera final de la Libertadores contra River pic.twitter.com/O7yFOpHtPd— Augusto Cesar (@Augustocesar22) November 7, 2018You have to understand that this will be a final against our most hated historic rival, reaching this stage against the biggest rival ever is simply fantastic for both Boca and River.Both clubs have managed to defeat incredibly competitive Brazilian clubs. Even though the Argentina National Team hasn’t done great things, this final speaks very well about the state of football in our country.More than the competition or that one of both clubs will lose this final, I believe this is a very positive thing for Argentina as a country.This is just as if Barcelona and Real Madrid played a Champions League final. The stadium is not that important, any of both clubs can win as a visitor and a local.What we need to do is try to get an advantage during the first match because doing that at La Bombonera makes things very different for the second match, but I really don’t think that having the first match at home will influence the final result for this final.Rivals that have this much history at this level, makes me realize that none of both have a real advantage.📊 Un superclásico mundial | Para la primera final de este sábado se duplicó la cantidad de solicitudes de acreditaciones de prensa y hubo pedidos de medios de más de 25 países para darle cobertura al evento.👉 Todos los detalles en https://t.co/DzXTrvsQ0o pic.twitter.com/bzw94av1So— Boca Jrs.
