River Plate have refused to play the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final against Boca Juniors at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu.

In a statement released on Saturday, the Argentinian club contested the idea they were responsible for the violent scenes which took place around their El Monumental Stadium last Saturday.

They said it is “incomprehensible” Argentina’s ‘Superclasico’ between the Buenos Aires rivals cannot take place domestically in a country which hosted the G20 summit this week.
