The call for Boca Juniors to disqualify River Plate for the behavior of the supporters of the club from the final of the Copa Libertadores was rejected.

The return leg of the final of the South American club competition will take place on Sunday in Madrid, after the violence against the fans in Argentina has been delayed.

The appeal came after River fans had attacked the Boca team bus before the first attempt to play the game on November 24, resulting in injury to the opponents' side.

However, the Sports Court of Arbitration confirmed on Saturday that it had dismissed an urgent appeal from Boca, filed on Friday, and that the "merit of the appeal" would later be reviewed by a CAS arbitral tribunal.

The rivals of Buenos Aires drew 2-2 in the first leg, which was played by Boca in early November.
