This Sunday Boca Juniors will be playing their arch rivals River Plate. They are lagging the leaders River Plate by 4 points and will have to win. I'll be in Turkey this weekend, and will catch this great game on TV.
Last Sunday there was a similar derby between Galatasaray and Fenerbahce, which Galatasaray won -and took the leadership with 2 weeks to go in the season. One of the big shots in the club administration had a version of Sos Cagon chant of the River Plate fans prepared for Galatasaray, which I have to admit was a good one. Too sad the Galatasaray fans could not sing it during the match. Here is the original one from River fans, which is amazing:
But my heart beats for Boca and their fans:
I will watch a Superclassico before I die. That is a must.
On the home front Besiktas is having a relatively shitty end to the season, stuck at the 4. place, with no hope of a direct UEFA Cup place. All of this after having the championship within our reach 3 weeks ago. To make the matters worse we had to play our game in a city 1000 kms away from Istanbul due to fan violence. This did not stop Besiktas fans filling up the stands in Adana, thanks to the help of a local team with whom we get along very well. Thanks Adana Demirspor!
I'm so glad I'll be able to watch a Besiktas game this Sunday, as we play against Ankaragucu.
