"We have a contract until 2021," Gallardo told a local radio station after River's 3-1 win over arch-rivals Boca Juniors in Madrid that gave them a 5-3 aggregate victory. The final, played in Spain because of violence caused by River fans in Buenos Aires, was one of the most unforgettable moments in the club's history and Gallardo said his solid relationship with the club where he also spent many years as a player was another reason to stay put. "That to me is priceless," he said. "I wake up every morning and I enjoy going to work. "This win was one of the happiest moments because of all it represented and because of what it means to the fans. It's something that can never be erased." River now

MADRID (AP) — Two Colombian players made all the difference — one good, one bad — in the Copa Libertadores final on Sunday. Boca Juniors' Wilmar Barrios was sent off close to the start of extra time, and River Plate's Juan Fernando Quintero scored his team's second goal at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. River added a third to win 3-1 and lift its fourth South American crown 5-3 on aggregate. The 25-year-old Barrios was one of Boca's best players in the first 90 minutes, blocking out River's creative midfield. His first yellow card came near the end of the second half of regular time, and the second following a violent tackle on Exequiel Palacios only two minutes into extra time. River took advantage

The much-delayed, highly controversial second leg of the Copa Libertadores final this Sunday may go to extra time and penalties -- and could go on even further. The final whistle in Madrid may not be the end of the biggest Boca Juniors vs. River Plate clash in history. Boca do not believe there is any need for the game to be played. In their view, River should be kicked out of the competition, held fully responsible for the action of their fans on Nov. 24th, when the Boca team bus was attacked on its approach to the stadium. Boca are taking the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. And so, whatever the outcome of Sunday's game, the destiny of the title still might be decided in the court
