BUENOS AIRES -- ESPN analysts answered five questions about what the scoreless draw between Boca Juniors and River Plate in the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana semifinals means.

BUENOS AIRES -- There comes a time when your legs have no more to give, and you have to use your head. Because when your brain gives orders, your body reluctantly obeys. In sum, you have to adapt to stay alive. It's an equation as obvious as it is inevitable.

Because of the constant string of recent matches, River didn't take the pitch in the first leg of this Copa Sudamericana semifinal Superclásico as heavily favored as they have been in the league. That's why head coach Marcelo Gallardo didn't...

Five keys for Boca versus River in the Superclasico

Boca Juniors and River Plate are set for another chapter in their fierce rivalry in the Copa Sudamericana.

BUENOS AIRES -- Pressure, fatigue, an opponent on the ropes, the weight of history and the virtues of a team with everything on the line in two matches. These are the keys for Boca to come out on top in this series against River Plate.
