SAO PAULO (AP) — The Copa Libertadores final between Boca Juniors and River Plate will be played on two Saturdays this month because of a political summit in Buenos Aires.

CONMEBOL posted on Twitter on Thursday the first match at Boca's La Bombonera will be on Nov. 10, and the second at River's Monumental de Nunez 14 days later.

Initially, the matches were scheduled for Nov. 7 and 28, but Buenos Aires will host the G20 summit in the last week of the month.
