Boca Juniors vs River Plate build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Having guided Xeneizes to Copa de la Liga Profesional glory earlier year, beating Banfield on penalties in the final, experienced tactician Miguel Angel Russo will be aiming to make it back-to-back titles, and doing so in style by potentially gaining Superclasico bragging rights en route to the showpiece in Santiago del Estero.
However, if there is one manager who knows how to come out on top in a Superclasico, it’s River Plate coach Marcelo Gallardo, who famously masterminded Copa Libertadores glory against Boca in 2018 on Real Madrid’s hallowed Bernabeu turf, and he will be relishing this contest to, not only lock horns with the current champions of the competition, but also an eternal adversary.

Players to watch: Carlos Tevez (Boca Juniors)
A quick glance at Boca’s roster and you’ll see a litany of familiar faces, none more so than three-time Premier League winner Carlos Tevez, who is currently enjoying a second spell at his boyhood club. That means he’s no stranger to duels with River and this latest meeting will be his 19th Superclasico; across those previous outings, Tevez has registered only four strikes, though he did net a brace in November 2016 at Estadio Monumental.
