The Copa Libertadores final remains in doubt, with both River Plate and Boca Juniors objecting to the staging of the rearranged second leg at Real Madrid's Bernabeu stadium.

Boca feel that after the second leg was called off following River fans attacking their team bus, the game should be awarded to them without having to be played.

From next season onwards, the final will be played in a single match at a neutral venue - a decision which CONMEBOL had already taken before last month's trouble.

The email states there is a limit to the number of the tickets, which, according to Real Madrid, was agreed with Copa Libertadores organiser Conmebol.

It had been suggested the fixture could be cancelled but Conmebol, the governing body of South American football, has instead opted to stage it in Madrid on December 9.

The PSG fullback posted a video Instagram in which he blasted Conmebol's decision to play the game outside of South America.

"It's unusual", Valverde said on Saturday. Who gets us out of there?

"I hope this is not played for the good of football and out of respect of those who had nothing to do with what happened".

River has issued an objection to losing out on the home-field advantage of playing the game in their Monumental stadium, saying their fans did not deserve to miss out on watching the final.
