CONMEBOL announced that the derby between Boca Juniors and River Plate was transferred to Sunday at 21.00.
It was possible to postpone the match for two hours, but the offer was rejected.
The game was probably postponed to Mondays or Wednesdays, but ultimately it was decided to delay Derby for 23 hours.
Another option that was discussed was the derby, which will be played next Saturday, November 17th.
Because of TV interest, the organizers have decided to suspend SuperClassic for 24 hours and on Sunday it is the final decision on whether or not the match can be held or diverted to another day.
