Carlos Tevez: Team Can Now Focus On Copa Libertadores Title

The players of Boca Juniors have had enough discussion about Copa Libertadores chaos. According to Carlos Tevez, it is now time to concentrate on the match. The team had their first practice session at Madrid before the rearranged final second leg against River Plate, the Argentine rival in Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Carlos Tevez said that it is necessary to have a clear mind and then focus as soon as they can on what is actually important before them at that time and that is the finals of Copa Libertadores.

River and Boca drew the first leg by 2-2 in the Buenos Aires La Bombonera Stadium. The return match was to be staged at the Monumental Stadium of River but had been postponed because the fans attacked the bus that was carrying the Boca players to this game.

After some serious discussion regarding what had to be done, CONMEBOL, the South American football ruling body moved it to Madrid because of some security problems. As a matter of fact, Boca Juniors is also known to have asked CONMEBOL for awarding the team with the tile due to the violence. This request had been denied as the appeals committee upheld the original ruling had been handed down.

A decision was being expected but Boca had said that they are going to take the appeal to the court. However, this is in the past as saying by Wilmar Barrios. They are going to play an important match in a good stadium and they hope that they are going to have a great spectacle at the match.

There were many cities which wanted to host the game but CONMEBOl chose the Spanish capital due to its large Argentine people. 10,000 fans are being expected to be traveling from Buenos Aires for watching the match.
