coach River Plate by Marcelo Gallardo, He regretted that the 2019 Copa Libertadores final was not in dispute in Santiago, Chile. He noted that the change of venue would show deep sadness for fans who will not be able to attend the match, which will now be played at the Monumental de Ate in Lima.

We already had a problem last year that we couldn't enjoy the finale with our people. It is a double disappointment of fans for not being able to enjoy this finale, "said Gallardo, who recalled that the previous Cup final was played in Madrid.
