This is all for them,” he said when asked about the rumors. “It all happened really fast, but the truth is this is the thing I wanted to achieve ever since my career started,” added Palacios about his new title. The midfielder completed a solid performance for River and combined beautifully in the play which allowed his team to score the opening goal. Palacios is still 20 years old but he clearly has experience at the highest level. Whether

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
