River Plate stand in Tigres' way of making Copa Libertadores history

River Plate are through to the finals of the Copa Libertadores after coming through 3-1 aggregate winners in their semifinal with Guarani.

It nearly happened in 2001, when Cruz Azul took Argentina's Boca Juniors all the way to a penalty shootout. There was briefly the threat of it taking place nine years later, when Adolfo Bautista put Chivas Guadalajara ahead in the first leg against Internacional -- only for the Brazilians to hit back and win both games.

"You want the best players here, and it's good for the squad," Carrick told ESPN FC after United's 3-1 preseason victory over Barcelona on Saturday in Santa Clara. "Basti...
