Big news!

NBC Sports Group will air the eagerly-anticipated second leg of the Copa Libertadores 2018 final this Sunday.


The game in Madrid, Spain between Argentine arch-rivals River Plate and Boca Juniors kicks off at 2 p.m. ET and will be available to watch in Spanish on Telemundo and online via NBCSports.com and via the NBC Sports app.

Whoever wins the match will be crowned as the best club team in South America this year, as the rivals from Buenos Aires lock horns in one of the greatest battles Argentinian soccer has ever seen.

Telemundo’s coverage will include special segments and analysis around the matchup, beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET, and a post-game show will air following the match.

With the scores locked at 2-2 following the first leg of the final at Boca’s La Bombonera stadium on Nov. 11, the second leg was postponed due to fan violence outside River’s Estadio Monumental on Nov. 24.

CONMEBOL, the governing body of soccer in South America, decided it wasn’t safe to play the second leg in Buenos Aires and instead selected to host the showpiece event in Madrid, Spain at Real Madrid’s legendary Santiago Bernabeu Stadium this weekend.
