Boca Juniors and River Plate fans were filmed checking in for departure at the Buenos Aires airport on Saturday, as Aerolineas Argentinas arranged two special flights to take football fans to the much-awaited Copa Libertadores final in Madrid.

"It's a good experience. It seems logical that they arranged a plane for River fans and a plane for Boca fans so there are no problems," said one River Plate fan.

Boca Juniors fan said that "it's the first time that I travel to see Boca play on the other side, with all the joy of reaching the triumph."

The Copa Libertadores final between River Plate and Boca Juniors will take place at Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday, following a draw in the first leg.

The second match of South America's most important club competition was originally meant to take place in River's home stadium El Monumental; however, it was rescheduled and moved to Madrid due to attacks on Boca's team bus by rival fans upon its arrival to the stadium.
