Boca Juniors v River Plate: Match postponed because of heavy rain

Superclásico Vladimir Putin to attend River Boca clash

Superclásico Vladimir Putin to attend River Boca clash

Never before have Boca and River faced off in the Copa Libertadores final, but the deluge at one of football's great cathedrals means the only topic of conversation in the country now has an unexpected chapter.

In fact, one radio station has made a decision to offer a special commentary aimed at keeping fans with heart problems calm during the two-legged contest on November 10 and 24.

As reported by, AM550 Radio Colonia will broadcast a calm version of live match coverage with the aim of telling the story of the game peacefully, without raising the listener's heart-rate.

This initiative is conducted by the Argentine Society of Cardiology, while Eduardo Caimi and Leonardo Uranga are the two commentators who are assigned with the task. The commentators have been instructed not to raise their voice. Cardiologist Gonzalo Díaz Babio will be the third member present in the panel and will be assisting both the commentators on how to avoid stress during moments of high drama. A special pre-match Spotify playlist with a list of soothing football songs designed at lowering nerves and anxiety has also been scheduled ahead of the clash.

Boca have won the Libertadores, South America's equivalent of the European Champions League, six times, to River's three.
