River Plate Win Historic Copa Libertadores Final Against Boca Juniors In Madrid

River Plate battled back to beat arch Argentine rivals Boca Juniors 3-1 in extra-time in an unforgettable and unique Copa Libertadores final second leg, played in Madrid after violence had seen the original game postponed.

"I want to inform the fans that in January I will not continue [with the club]", an emotional Martinez is quoted as saying by TyC Sports.

"It's a very hard decision for me, but the road continues". "I think the people who behaved well and were patient the other day can enjoy a little bit of happiness after what the players achieved for them on the field".

Atlanta have reportedly agreed to pay the Argentina international's $17 million release clause. European clubs did not put their trust in me at the time, and I thought long and hard about it with my family and my agent.

Gonzalo Martinez then wrapped up a 5-3 aggregate victory with the last kick of the game after Boca keeper Esteban Andrada had been stranded upfield at a corner.

Two Colombian players made all the difference - one good, one bad - in the Copa Libertadores final Sunday.

"At the beginning of the year I said that I was coming to win the cup and in a year I got it, against the biggest rival of the club", Ponzio said. This final is over, but a lot of things still need to be solved.

"At this moment there are still many things going around, we still did not realise what we did", he added.

Eventually it was decided that the match would take place at the home of Real Madrid, allowing some of the best players and coaches in Europe to attend the match.

Fellow Atletico teammate Diego Godin and compatriot Lucas Torreira, who is now at Arsenal, have also announced that they will be in attendance to support Boca.
