Boca Juniors Vs. River Plate, 2011 Super Clasico: Lineups

Huge matches like the Super Clasico often end up as relatively dull affairs where both teams are too afraid to lose to commit men forward, but the lineups that Boca Juniors and River Plate have selected for this match indicate that both teams are going out to attack. River are, interestingly enough, in two battles this season, and they need a win to both stay well clear of the relegation zone and stay among the title contenders. Boca don't have much to play for other than pride, but in front of the home crowd at La Bombonera in the Super Clasico, pride is enough. Here are the lineups.

Boca Juniors lineup (4-3-1-2): Lucchetti; Carruzo, Rodriguez, Insaurralde, Monzon; Somoza, Chavez, Colazo; Riquelme, Palermo, Mouche

Substitutes: Garcia, Calvo, Sauro, Erviti, Mazzola, Viatri, Noir

River Plate lineup (3-4-1-2): Carrizo; Maidana, Roman, Ferrero; Ferrari, Acevedo, Almeyda, Pereyra; Lamela; Pavone, Mori

Substitutes: Chichizola; Arano, Pirez, Ballon, Caruso, Cirigliano, Lanzini

Kickoff is at 3 pm ET from La Bombonera.
