Boca Holds 1st Practice in Madrid Ahead of Libertadores Final vs. River Plate

MADRID – Boca Juniors completed on Thursday the squad’s first practice at the soccer training facilities of Las Rozas, a suburb of the Spanish capital, in preparation for the upcoming Copa Libertadores final second leg clash against fellow Argentine side River Plate.

Boca Juniors’ practice lasted for one hour and half and garnished much media coverage, with more than 150 authorized pressmen of 64 media outlets, 45 cameras and about 30 photojournalists.

Some of Boca’s supporters watched the Thursday training session from outside the practice pitch in order to see the team’s stars train, such as forwards Ramon Abila, Dario Benedetto, Edwin Cardona and Carlos Tevez, in addition to veteran midfielder Fernando Gago, who previously played for La Liga sides Real Madrid and Valencia.

Boca Juniors was held at home to a 2-2 tie in the final’s first leg on Nov. 11, while the second leg was originally scheduled to be played between the Argentine archrivals on Nov. 24 at the Estadio Monumental in Buenos Aires.

However, following River Plate supporters attacking Boca’s bus with rocks and injuring several players, the South American football confederation (Conmebol) postponed the match to Sunday and changed the location of the game to the Spanish capital’s iconic Santiago Bernabeu stadium, home of the famed soccer club Real Madrid.
