Lots of stories already of rival fans burning down each others houses and babies being named River Plate. One guy's soon to be wife was not as accommodating as she would not allow a tv with the game to be played during their wedding ceremony. I can only imagine there will be some more craziness coming over the next couple of weeks. It used to be River Plate were the posher, risher club and Boca the working man's team, sort of like Austria Wien and Rapid Wien.
A quick look at the teams suggests that a lot of the players are older, returning mercenaries from Europe. Some names you may recognize:
Boca Juniors: Fernando Gago, Christian Pavon, Mario Zarate, Carlos Tevez, Ramon Abila
River Plate: Franco Armani, Juan Quintero, Gonzalo Martinez, Enzo Perez and of course Nurnberg legend Javier Pinola.
