Ahead of their team's semifinal, and with the prospect of River facing Champions League winners Real Madrid in the final, a group of River supporters took the 18 hour flight from Buenos Aires to the United Arab Emirates with the hope of getting tickets for the final.

One problem though ... upon landing, the group found out...

River Plate vs. Boca Juniors friendly cancelled amid safety fears

Next month's Superclasico between River Plate and Boca Juniors in the Mar del Plata tournament will not take place because of safety concerns, authorities have announced.

The match was initially confirmed on Mar del Plata's tourism website as the last game of the 2019 tournament.
