This time, the match will be on River Plate Stadium (Núñez neighborhood, north of Buenos Aires City) at 6.15 PM. 105 years after the first classic match was played (and won 2-1 by Boca Juniors), both teams will try to get to the top of the table.
According to the British newspaper “The Observer”, this match is among the 50 sports shows you should see before you die.

These fans are the ones that make this match a unique spectacle for anyone who experiences it.
