    The celebrations are only just starting now. The River players stand tightly packed on low stage, look to their fans and bounce. Gonzalo Martinez shouts message of love to the camera which pans away so the microphone is out of range.

  6. Post update

    FT: River 3-1 Boca Juniors

    Here come Boca's players now. Only very few are happy to keep the silver medal around their neck. Wílmar Barrios is consoled. His red card of course changed the game.

    There are a lot of worried and sad faces among them. The post-mortem on this match will go on for a long, long time.

    FT: River Plate 3-1 Boca Juniors

    What an incredible end to the match. A match that took so long to finally take place and went through so much on the way.

    In the end, the standout moment that defined it was a footballing one: Juan Quintero's magic strike, deep into extra time.

    Never will a goal have been celebrated so fiercely in Buenos Aires.

    It's their fourth title.

  12. FULL-TIME

    River Plate 3-1 Boca Juniors

    Sensational.

  13. GOAL - River Plate 3-1 Boca Juniors

    Gonzalo Martinez

    Esteban Andrada is inches away from connecting. Franco Armani just punches the ball away from under his nose.

    River break. There is no Boca defence. There is no Boca keeper. Andrada is in River's six-yard box.

    Gonzalo Martinez sprints clear and finishes. This is over.

  14. Post update

    River Plate 2-1 Boca Juniors

    Corner ball. The keeper Esteban Andrada is up again.

  15. HITS THE WOODWORK

    River Plate 2-1 Boca Juniors

    Boca storm forward again in these ragged final stages.

    A high cross hangs in the box, it falls to Leonardo Jara. He digs out a volley and it clips the post but goes wide. Heartbreaking for Boca.

  16. Post update

    River Plate 2-1 Boca Juniors

    Esteban Andrada is still way off his line, playing like a sweeper, and a long River lob looking for glory misses the target.

    They come again, River. Three v three. Boca's last defender appears to push his man off the ball but the ref waves play on.

  17. Post update

    River Plate 2-1 Boca Juniors

    ONE minute to play. Boca's nine players will throw everything at it.

  18. Post update

    River Plate 2-1 Boca Juniors

    Fernando Gago has had to limp off the pitch. He looks to have pulled a muscle. Boca are down to nine.

    Esteban Andrada comes out to claim a long ball and just about gets away from danger.

  19. Post update

    River Plate 2-1 Boca Juniors

    Julian Alvarez jinks into the box as his marker trips himself up trying to challenge. His shot is tame and easy to stop.

  20. Post update

    River Plate 2-1 Boca Juniors

    This classic encounter just has FOUR minutes of extra time to run. Is there time?
