River Plate vs. Boca Juniors, 2012 Super Clasico: Lineups

Boca Juniors and River Plate haven't met in the Argentine Primera for 17 months, and this edition of the Super Clasico might end up getting even more chippy than most as a result. Unsurprisingly, both managers have selected their most experienced and composed players over younger, more talented options.

Boca have rotated players in their No. 10 slot in the absence of Juan Roman Riquelme and have picked the most veteran option for this match, 26-year-old Cristian Chávez. River have picked David Trezeguet up top, even though he has just one goal this year and was in France for personal reasons earlier this week.

River Plate starting lineup (4-4-2): Barovero; Mercado, Pezzella, Bottinelli, Ra. Funes Mori; Sánchez, Cirigliano, Ponzio, Aguirre; Rodrigo Mora, Trezeguet

Boca Juniors starting lineup (4-3-1-2): Orión; Albín, Schiavi, Burdisso, Rodriguez; Somoza, Erviti, Sánchez Miño; Chavez; Viatri, Silva

Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m. ET, 3:30 p.m. local time from the Monumental, and the game can be seen on GolTV in the U.S.
