The highly-anticipated Copa Libertadores final between Boca Juniors and River Plate won't begin on Saturday. The two-leg affair has been postponed due to heavy rain, and the first leg will now kick off on Sunday, CONMEBOL announced.

The bitter rivals were expected to take the field on Saturday afternoon but heavy rain overnight in Buenos Aires left the field unplayable. The federation stated that the game will now take place on Sunday at 2 p.m. ET.
