The word controversial barely does justice to the moving of the game to Madrid, but Telemundo Deportes is all set for the River Plate v Boca Juniors clash in the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final on 9 December.

An attack on the Boca Juniors team bus just hours before the scheduled start of the fixture at the Estadio Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires on 24 November led to the game now being held at the Santiago Bernabéu, the world-famous home of Real Madrid.

The Spanish-language network will present live coverage of the much anticipated game on Telemundo and the Telemundo Deportes App beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET with a special pre-game show. The game will also be available on cable television on Fox Deportes. Telemundo Deportes’ Andrés Cantor, Miguel Gurwitz, Sammy Sadovnik, Eduardo Biscayart and Carlota Vizmanos will lead the Final’s coverage, live from Madrid and Telemundo Centre in Miami.

Telemundo Deportes’ digital platforms will continue providing the latest news around the game including previews, analysis and video highlights. In addition, Tercer Tiempo, Telemundo Deportes’ Emmy-nominated sports analysis show that focuses on Premier League, will precede Sunday’s broadcast of Copa Libertadores, featuring special segments and analysis around the matchup, beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET. A post-game show will air following the match.

The winner of the match will participate in the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2018 that features some of the world’s best players and club teams, including Real Madrid and CD Guadalajara. This tournament will also air exclusively across Telemundo, Universo, and the Telemundo Deportes App, beginning with the opening match on 12 December 12 at 10:25 a.m. ET.

“This acquisition is another step forward in our commitment to continue adding the best and biggest sports to our programming line-up,” said Ray Warren, President of Telemundo Deportes. “We are excited to bring Telemundo viewers one of the most anticipated matchups of the year, complemented by extensive pre/post coverage led by our renowned experts.”
