Boca Juniors vs. River Plate never disappoints. A January 2016 friendly even saw five players sent off.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- They gather twice a year, sometimes more often, for the most important civic event in the port city of Buenos Aires: Boca Juniors vs. River Plate.

There are still 11 places up for grabs in the knockout stage of the Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League. With two weeks of group games to go, five teams have already booked their passage.

Atletico Nacional of Colombia have sailed through, winning all four of their games so far, while the two Liga MX sides, Toluca and Pumas, have also made short work of earning their place in the last 16. Nacional of Uruguay, tight in defence and with a sharp counter-attack, have ground their way...
