I live in Budapest, Hungary, and I didn't hesitate at all when I found out the match was going to be played here, and I came with my wife and brother-in-law, who are from Norway.
It has been crazy but spectacular too." 5.

RIVER PLATE FANS SINGING AND WAVING FLAGS AS THEY PREPARE TO ENTER STADIUM STORY: Boca Juniors supporters collected their tickets in Madrid on Sunday (December 9) and geared up for the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final against River Plate.
Fans of both teams will be gathered at different fan zones defined by Spanish police, meant to keep both group of fans away to prevent any confrontation.
The second leg of the final was scheduled for November 24 in Argentina but was postponed, then moved to Madrid, after several Boca players sustained injuries when rocks were thrown at their team bus as it arrived at River's Monumental stadium.
Spanish police said they were working with Argentine counterparts to identify and intercept any known troublemakers ahead of the South American club final showdown at Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu stadium.
The first leg, played at Boca's Bombonera stadium on November 11, ended 2-2.
