UPDATE 1-Copa Libertadores final postponed again following bus attack
The decisive leg had been scheduled to be played on Saturday but was suspended until Sunday after Boca players were injured when their bus was attacked by River fans outside their Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires.
"We don't want there to be any excuses that conditions were not equal for both teams," Alejandro Dominguez, the president of the South American soccer confederation CONMEBOL, said on TV. "We want both teams to have time to recover."
Earlier in the day the Boca Juniors club requested the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final be suspended, saying the game could not take place under conditions that were equal for both teams.
It was the first time Argentina's two biggest clubs had met for the title. The crosstown showdown had been billed as the greatest final in the competition's 58-year history.
But Saturday's scheduled final will instead be remembered for the violence that left players bleeding and almost all the windows on one side of the Boca bus shattered. (Reporting by Andrew Downie Editing by Daniel Flynn and Phil Berlowitz)
