Watch Boca Juniors v River Plate live, right here!

As my Twitter followers are already well aware, the Argentine government’s Fútbol Para Todos programme has, for some time now, been streaming the vast majority of Primera División matches live to the world on YouTube. Today is no exception, so assuming this embed works properly, I am able to invite you to enjoy the superclásico right here on HEGS, live from La Bombonera, as Boca Juniors take on River Plate. You should see the video below; clicking ‘Live’ (or ‘Vivo’, if that’s what it says) will bump the stream forward to the current moment. Enjoy.

I’m going to click Publish straight away so you can enjoy the buildup – kick off is at 18:15 ART, which is in about 15 minutes as I write this. I’ll then add in the lineups, so if you refresh this page in about five minutes you should be able to see the players listed below the video.
