    The two biggest rivals in Argentine football - Boca Juniors and River Plate - will play the repeatedly deferred final of Copa Libertadores final in Madrid, Spain on Sunday.

    The announcement came after the Court of Arbitration for Sport rejected Boca's appeal against the match as they sought River's disqualification in the wake of the attack on their team bus last month.
