Libertadores Cup 2007
BOCA JRS[Arg] v CUCUTA[Col]
June 7, 2007
Unusual heavy fog has caused the Postponemnet of the game for 30 minutes. Still, the pitch was well covered with fog. The game was almost cancelled ... during the match it had to be stopped for about 5 minutes in the 2nd half when the fog reached low enuff to make it impossible for the assistant refs to see the other side of the pitch.
Away goal rule in effect as tie breaker. If still tied after the 90 minutes, directly to pks (no extra time played)
Boca needs to win by a margin of 2 goals to overturn the 1-3 defeat in the 1st leg. Goalie Caranta will return to goal even thou he is not 100% recovered. Tonite Boca can reach their 9th Libertadores final in their history ... tieing Uruguay's Penarol for the most. It could also mean their 5th final since 2000.
Cucuta arrived to Bs As with the confidence of the 1st leg result and knowing that their speed could be determinant for the counters ... taking advantage of Boca's need to go forward. Their star striker, Blas Perez, will miss the game, as he is with his NT for the Gold Cup tournament. All other team members are healthy for this game which could mean their club's first final.
