What They're Saying: Pablo Perez

“There is little to enjoy and I’m not enjoying it. I am trying to treat it as a World Cup final and think about it all the time so that no details escape me.”

-- Boca Juniors captain Pablo Perez on the first Boca Juniors-River Plate final in the Copa Libertadores, which starts on Saturday. The Buenos Aires clubs are Argentina's two most popular teams but have never met in the Copa Libertadores final. When they met in the round of 16 three years ago, Boca Juniors forfeited after fans sprayed River Plate players with home-made tear gas as they returned to the field for the start of the second half of the second leg.
