River Plate and Atletico Nacional prepare for Copa Sudamericana final

Atletico Nacional will battle it out with River Plate in the final of the 2014 Copa Sudamericana.

The two-legged final of the Copa Sudamericana, this and next Wednesday, has run the risk of being overshadowed by the previous phase.

The semifinals were short on goals but long on drama. After a 1-1 aggregate draw, Atletico Nacional of Colombia defeated Sao Paulo of Brazil on penalties and briefly threatened to bring a melancholic close to the career of legendary Brazilian goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni. Subsequently, Ceni has announced he will play on in Sao Paulo's Copa Libertadores campaign.
