1. TIME AND PLACE

2. IS THERE A GOLF OF A VISITOR?
No. The final is the only instance where the double purpose of the visitor is not calculated (if there is equality in the overall result). The team that wins will receive the Cup.

The Uruguayan Andrés Cunha was appointed to administer justice in Núñez. In addition, fellow assistants Nicolás Taran and Mauricio Espinosa will accompany him (the fourth will be the Peruvian Victor Carrillo). In the VAR will be the Uruguayan Leodán González, Esteban Ostojich, Richard Trinidad and Martín Vázquez. As an international consultant, the Paraguayan Carlos Torres.
4. HOW MANY TICKETS WERE SOLD

7. WHAT FOOTBALL PLAYERS ARE SUSPENDED OR LOST
On the river side, Rafael Santos Borré (suspended for accumulation of yellow cards) and Ignacio Scocco, who suffered a rupture in the right calf, will be absent.

9. THE FACT THAT ILLUMINATES THE RIVER

His mystic copera will be accompanied by current statistics: he is undefeated as a visitor in the current Libertadores and Guillermo Barros Schelotto left unblemished in his three trips to Monumental, since he leads the Xeneize (a draw and two victories of the Super League). The individualities, the great bet of the twin.
