Boca coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto said this final drew attention from all over the world. "But it must be admitted, thanks to this Superclasico everyone in the world talks about it. "The Superclasico brings Argentine football to the highest level," Schelotto told the AP yesterday.
The technical aspects according to the 45-year coach are equally high. But, it is precisely the control of emotions among the players to watch out for. Four Boca players (Pablo Perez, Cristian Pavon, Nahitan Nandez, and Lucas Olaza) have pocketed two yellow cards. And if in the first leg they get a yellow card then at El Monumental it is certainly absent.
Same is the case with Boca. Six River Plate players also collected two yellow cards towards the final of the biggest Latin American football tournament. They are Jonatan Maidana, Javier Pinola, Enzo Perez, Gonzalo Martinez, Lucas Pratto, and Rafael Santos Borre.
Well, at the last meeting of the two at the Argentina Superliga 2018, River could be proud. Los Millonarios won 2-0 over Boca at La Bombonera on 23 September.
"This Superclasico is not just a match like in the league, which we generally face. This is the final and in my head there is only the thought of how to win these two legs, "Schelotto said.
On the other hand, River Plate coach Marcelo Gallardo gave great attention to Boca striker Carlos Tevez. Tevez's experience as a senior player, even though he is no longer the main player, is still great. At least it can boost motivation not to lose in this first match.
