River Plate supporters were filmed gearing up for the fierce derby against arch-rivals Boca Juniors in the first leg of the Copa Libertadores semifinal at the El Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires on Tuesday.

Footage from the stadium shows the arrival of the Boca Juniors team bus with a heavy police escort, followed by shots of River Plate fans lighting flares and smoke bombs, and singing.

"I have a hunch that we were going to win three to zero, it's just a hunch," said Alberto Sosa, a River fan.

River and Boca meet for the first time in the Copa Libertadores since the final in the 2018/2019 season, which River Plate won.
