River Plate followed Boca Juniors out of the Copa Sudamericana last night to emphatically deny CONMEBOL the all-singing, all-dancing, superclásico semi-final they always seem to wish for in this competition. Leading 2-0 at half time and playing well, Diego Simeone’s team fell to pieces after the break and their Mexican opponents Chivas came back to get a 2-2 draw, and go through the semis after a 4-3 aggregate win. All the goals from that match and from Boca’s loss to Internacional, right here.
Boca Juniors 1 – 2 Internacional de Porto Alegre (1-4 agg.)
Guadalajara 2 – 2 River Plate (4-3 agg.)
