River-Boca could be played at the Bernabeu!


The Copa Libertadores final between Boca Juniors and River Plate has taken another turn, as it's emerged that the match could be played at Real Madrid's Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
With security at the Estadio Monumental not guaranteed, the various parties are seeking to agree a date and venue as soon as possible.
Jugones de La Sexta report that Real have given the O.K., and that Conmebol, FIFA and the Spanish Federation would agree to the proposal.
This Thursday in Asuncion, the decision will be made as to whether or not the final is played at all, an issue that remains to be clarified.
In case of a positive outcome, which would be the most logical, discussions would then be had as to the venue, but what is clear is that the final will not be played in Buenos Aires.
Real Madrid play away at Huesca over the weekend of December 8 and 9, which is the new date that has been scheduled in for the south American showpiece.
Conmebol would prefer the Bernabeu to Doha, although economically Qatar would pay approximately 14 million euros for the privilege, free transfers for a delegation of 40 people per team and their stay.
The reason is that Qatar Airways are the most important sponsors of Conmebol and Boca.
Florentino Perez has a strong relationship with the presidents of River and Boca, Rodolfo D'Onofrio and Daniel Angelici, and besides the prestige of playing at the stadium of the triple champion of Europe, there is an Argentine colony in Madrid of 71,000 registered inhabitants that would receive the final with open arms.
