SCRIPT
River Plate players were in high spirits as they trained ahead of their clash against Brazil's Flamengo in Copa Libertadores final, in Lima on Thursday.
Defending champions River from Argentina will face Flamengo, who have not lifted the trophy since 1981.
River overcame fierce rivals Boca in the semi-final to have a chance at retaining their crown in Lima's Estadio Monumental.
The tournament will be decided in a one-off game and a neutral venue for the first time since 1988 as organisers look to market the competition globally.
