If there is a sports match which incites fervent passions and brings the country to a standstill, it is the Clásico Boca versus River. These titans of soccer have historically been rivals; it has been 86 years since the blue and gold of Boca and River's so-called "millionaires" came face to face. Since the games quickly sell-out, newspapers headline the results and popular cheers are ever invented against the rival team. There is no Argentine capable of resisting the euphoria.
