There was never an all-Argentinian final before. Now it's coming.
Really? I would have thought there were a few, especially back in the Indipendiente days.
Back in those days (and until relatively recently) teams from the same
country would necessarily face off before the final. This changed in the
early 2000's, when the tournament was expanded, but the "principle" was
adopted again after two consecutive all-Brasilian finals (2005 and 2006).
Don't remember when it changed again, but it was recent and welcome imho.

VARobots and non robot referees are not the most popular things/people in
Sao Paulo tonight.
It all started off so well, with fireworks and fans and frenzy and a goal
for Palmeiras, but the VARobots took that goal away and it has been downhill
since then. I really can not see a comeback, but it has happened before,
Palmeiras was brave, but Boca's second goal (Benedetto's third in the semis)
settled the matter. Congrats to the Argentinians. We're on to a huge final.
