River Plate wins Copa Libertadores

MADRID (AP) River Plate has won the Copa Libertadores after beating fierce rival Boca Juniors 3-1 in extra time on Sunday in Madrid to take the title 5-3 on aggregate.

Juan Fernando Quintero scored four minutes into the second half of extra time in South America's equivalent of the Champions League to make it 2-1 to River before Gonzalo Martinez added a third.

The game went to extra time after finishing 1-1. Dario Benedetto scored for Boca just before halftime in the high-profile "superclasico," and Lucas Pratto equalized for River in the 67th minute.
