Copa Libertadores - How to watch Boca Juniors vs River Plate

What is Boca Juniors and River Plate's form ahead of this game?

Boca Juniors enters the second leg of this semi-final clash having won one of their last four games. Their last clash ended in a 1-0 loss against Racing Club in the Argentine Superliga, but coach Gustavo Alfaro used most of his reserves to have a fresh squad for Tuesday's matchup.

River Plate makes it to the return leg with three wins in their last four games, including their victory in the first leg. Los Millonarios salvaged one point from their clash against Arsenal last weekend, despite being down 3-1 with 28 minutes left in that game.

What do Boca Juniors and River Plate need to reach the 2019 Copa Libertadores final?

Boca Juniors needs to win by a three-goal margin, regardless of what River Plate does in Tuesday's matchup. Los Xeneizes have accomplished that feat four times this year, but they haven't been able to score three goals in one game in the past two months.

River Plate defeated Boca Juniors with a 2-0 score in the first leg, which places them in pole position to reach the tournament's final. Los Millonarios could lose the game with a 1-0 score and still make it to the final, and all draws would have the same effect on the tie.
