It's the highlight of the Argentine league on Sunday and the resumption of one of the most fearsome rivalries in world football. River Plate travel across Buenos Aires to take on Boca Juniors. River are in fourth place in the league and could lift the Clausura title. But they've hit a bad run of form, culminating in last weekend's 2-0 home reversal against mid-table Olimpo. Twelfth place in he table at the moment with a mere 17 points from 13 fixtures, Boca aren't enjoying themselves. Prolific forward Guillermo Barros Schelotto should return to the starting line-up as Jorge Benitez shuffles his pack. As usual, it's a 54,000 sell-out though River have only been given 5,000 of them as they aim to continue their recent dominance of this particular fixture. (AP)
