Boca Juniors will look to give their Primera Division Group B campaign a shot in the arm when they take on their arch rivals River Plate in Buenos Aires. The hosts come into the clash sitting back in fifth in the standings, eight points adrift of the top two and a Copa Libertadores qualifying berth.

Former Juventus striker Carlos Tevez will be out to end his drought in the contest since returning to Argentina following an 11-year spell in Europe.

The 32-year-old has failed to score against River since his return to Buenos Aires and is looking forward to taking another shot at Los Millonarios.

"A Boca-River game is one of the most beautiful things that can happen for a player," he told ESPN ahead of the game.

"You have to enjoy it as much as you can, every minute and every second you have to save it into your memory.

"It will always stay in your mind. They are things that will stay with you and you will never forget how you lived them.

"It is a derby that everyone is watching, not just in the Bombonera, and every player wants to play. Everyone dreams about Boca v River."

Tevez scored a brace in Boca's 6-2 win over Deportivo Cali in the Copa Libertadores in midweek to win Group 3 of the competition and progress to the last 16 of the competition.

River Plate, meanwhile, go into the game having joined Juniors in the knock-out phase of the tournament with a 4-3 victory over Trujillanos.

They are struggling in Group A of the Primera Division, as they sit down in 13th in the table, 15 points adrift of leaders Lanus. The visitors scored a 1-0 win at Olimpo last time out but went five games without a victory prior to that and Boca are tipped to hand them their fifth defeat of the campaign here.
