For the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores, River will receive Velez Sarsfield today at the Monumental Stadium. After Boca Juniors' elimination on Tuesday after losing to Corinthians on penalties, Marcelo Gallardo's team will try to turn around the series and clinch a spot in the quarterfinals. Here you can find all you need to know about this game, such as when, where, at what time, and how to watch or live stream it free in the United States.

Velez Sarsfield will go to “El Monumental” knowing they have a tough game ahead of them. The advantage obtained in Liniers allows them to have some peace of mind, but they also know that the 1-0 is not a guarantee of anything, so they will have to be careful against a River Plate team that plays very well, especially when they play at home.

On the side of the "Millonarios", despite the fact that the defeat when it comes to two teams so evenly matched cannot be a good result, that it was only 1-0 (and even more so if you take into account that Velez lost a very clear almost at the end of the first leg) is good news especially because they have the chance to define in "El monumental".
