SCRIPT
Thousands of River Plate and Flamengo fans gathered to greet the arrivals of their team buses in the Peruvian capital of Lima on Wednesday night.
The crowds, who have travelled from across Latin America, were in jubilant mood ahead of the Copa Libertadores final - the continent's flagship competition.
Last year's match became chaotic following running battles between fierce rivals River and Boca Juniors fans in Buenos Aires, forcing the game to move to Madrid.
This year's edition is no different, with nationwide protests in Chile forcing the organisers to abandon plans to hold the final in Santiago and instead move it to Lima.
This hasn't stopped fans travelling in huge numbers from Argentina and Brazil if the arrivals are anything to go by.
River Plate will face Flamengo in a Brazil-Argentina final in the Peruvian capital on November 23. The 2018 champions beat Buenos Aires rivals and last year’s finalists Boca Juniors at the penultimate stage of South America’s flagship competition last month.
