Copa Libertadores final 2nd leg: Boca v River Plate is on Freesports/Freesports HD tonight.

KO put back to 21:00 due to the Boca bus being attacked

Enjoy

Using favourites you can set up the HD versions of your usual channels to be at or near the top

It was a bit worse than that Players were attacked with tear gas as well. Imagine that happening to the snowflakes of Emptyhad FC

Game has been postponed until 8PM tomorrow due to rioting outside the ground. Just another day at the office in Buenos Aires.

Sensible decision taken - unlike when it happened to Man City.

The fact it has been cancelled again, raises the chances of the game being awarded to Boca Juniors imo.

Absolutely the right decision, the players were tear gassed and Doctors gave the players banned substances to help them recover from the effects.

Sadly hooliganism has been a increasing problem in Argentinian football for quite a while now.

As always with these incidents football is farthest from the minds of these morons. It's just a convenient way for them to fight out their disagreement or in some cases simply a convenient way for them to be violent.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

My own view is with BT not winning SPFL and UFC plus more. We feel that BT will put BT Sports up for sale in 2019.

We feel Virgin Media UK, Eurosport, 11 Sports or Premier Sports will bid to buy BT Sports.

Why?

-Virgin Media runs an Sport channel in Ireland right now called "Virgin Media Sport"
-11 Sports can launch on Sky and Virgin Media if they take BT Sports over.
-Eurosport and Premier Sports - BT Sport took over ESPN UK when BT Sports was set to launch to add more sports rights.

I'm a little bit puzzled as to why you think BT will put their sports channels up for sale next year. Yes they've lost a few sports rights but they still have a lot to offer and who knows may win the m back in a few years from now.

I seriously doubt it, they may be taking a less aggressive stance to bidding under the new management but they still hold the rights to:-

Premier League (with sky as a major partner)
Champions League (exclusive)
Europa League (exclusive)
FA Cup (with BBC as a minor partner)
French Ligue 1 (exclusive)
Bundesliga (exclusive)

Premiership Rugby (exclusive)
Scotland Rugby Internationals (with BBC as an equal partner)
Australian Cricket - home internationals incl next Ashes tour (exclusive)
Australian Big Bash T-20 (exclusive)
Hockey World Cup (exclusive)

Plus a number of minor sports rights

I'm not sure anyone could afford to buy them out of all this given the amount they have spent on the rights.

Unfortunately, I think it is more likely Virgin customers will end up paying for BT Sports.
