BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) – River Plate have rejected the decision to play the second leg of the postponed Copa Libertadores final against their neighbors and bitter rivals Boca Juniors in Madrid.

“River Plate reject the change of venue,” the club said in a statement on Saturday.

“The club understands that the decision (to play in Madrid)… adversely affects those who bought tickets and also upsets the idea of equal conditions by taking away home advantage.”
