We think the welcome that the River Plate team received from their 50,000-strong home crowd at the Estadio Monumental before Sunday’s ‘Superclasico’ game against Boca Juniors at the weekend could best be described as ‘rapturous’ (click through for the full-sized images)…

The Superclasico itself ended 2-2, with Boca leaving it fashionably late to come from 2-0 down, scoring twice in the last 15 minutes – the second coming in injury time – to salvage a draw from the jaws of defeat.
