Libertadores Cup 2004
BOCA JRS v RIVER PLATE
June 10th and 17th
This is a 50 minute special that recreates all the emotions that surrounded one of the most important Superclasicos ever played. The instance, a Libertadores Cup semifinal, is probably the most significant official game these two clubs have ever played.
As you all know, TV needs are closely related to the way games are played these days. For television purposes, the games needed to be played at night. Local authorities determined that the risks of fan clashes was too high ... therefore, for the fist time, the Superclasicos were played solely with local public.
The first leg was played in La Bombonera on June 10th. The return leg at the Monumental was a week later, on June 17th. This "MOVIE" covers both games ... with some serious dramatization music added that certainly helps the viewer "feel" a bit more what those 3+ hrs really meant.
