The Argentine soccer community will be in for a treat this week as Boca Juniors and River Plate meet at the Estadio Ciudad de La Plata in a new edition of the biggest derby in the country. The stakes will be high as well as they'll fight for a place in the 2021 Copa Argentina quarterfinals. Here, find out the date, time, and TV Channel in the US to watch this can't-miss Superclasico.
When it comes to the greatest matchups in Argentine soccer, one game will probably come up to mind first: the Superclasico. Over the last few years, these two giants have been taking the spotlight at the biggest stages including a historic Copa Libertadores final, and now they'll once again take the field in a win-or-go-home game.
The Xeneize defeated the Millonario in their last meeting for the 2021 Copa de la Liga Profesional quarterfinals on penalties. Therefore, Marcelo Gallardo's boys will be seeking redemption this time. Miguel Angel Russo's side would need the victory to raise its spirits after two difficult weeks since its controversial Libertadores elimination at the hands of Atletico Mineiro.
