Boca vs. River headlines Copa Libertadores semis

River Plate manager Ramon Diaz spoke ahead of his side's 'Superclasico' with Boca Juniors and discussed the history behind the fixture

In the early hours of Thursday a violent storm broke over Buenos Aires -- mere prelude, perhaps, to the matchup in the semifinal of the Copa Libertadores that has been both desired and dreaded.
