Beyond the Boca Super Bowl for the Copa Libertadores, there is another important issue on the river that their leaders take care of. This is the possible sale of Exequiel Palacios, the 20 year old youngster who is vital to Marcelo Gallardo as a whole.

Although at Núñez Club, leaders know the talks with Renato Corsi, one of the player's agents, anyway they deny that their Spanish institution is in contact. And there's a fight against Real. "From the river, we are surprised to see that an institution like Madrid has been forced into this negotiation directly with the footballer without respecting a club like the river and behind his back," said Rodolfo Onofrio the Spanish newspaper Brand.

The midfielder was a 2-1 winner of the river against Gremio who gave the Millionaire the pass to the Copa Libertadores final. For this reason, it is most likely the holder of the pre-mouth definition history. And he's not one of the six players on the edge of the yellow limit, something other than the headaches of Gallardo.
