Lucas Pratto and Darío Benedetto's goals as River Plate and Boca Juniors are united by the same obsession: winning the CONMEBOL Libertadores

After the first leg, the two Argentinian giants are preparing for the return encounter on the 24th November at El Monumental

There's one final match left: the final. On Saturday 24th November at 20:00 GMT the CONMEBOL Libertadores winner will be decided at River's El Monumental stadium. It's all or nothing for River and Boca as only one team can be crowned champions after the 2-2 draw at La Bombonera.

In the first leg, two men stood out from the pack. Darío Benedetto got one of Boca's two goals last Sunday, adding to the three he scored against Palmeiras in the semi-final. 'El Pipa' has come off the bench in Boca's last three matches to score his four goals in just 62 minutes.

Lucas Pratto, who arrived at River at the beginning of this year, produced his best performance to date against Boca in the first leg. He scored his side's first goal and forced Carlos Izquierdoz to put the ball into his own net to make it 2-2. The attacker leads the goalscoring charts for River in this season's CONMEBOL Libertadores with four goals to his name. He's scored against Emelec, Santa Fe, Racing and now Boca.
