De Rossi back for Boca

Daniele De Rossi has been declared fit enough to feature in Boca Juniors’ squad for the Superclasico with River Plate on Wednesday.

De Rossi has played just five games for Boca since arriving in July due to a hamstring problem, which has kept him out for the past month.

However, the former Roma midfielder has been called up for the second leg of his side’s Copa Libertadores semi-final with River, who lead 2-0 on aggregate.

If he can prove his fitness, the 36-year-old may be considered for a farewell appearance with Italy during the international break in November.

The derby is given the nickname ‘Superclasico’ because of the intense rivalry between the two Argentine clubs.

They are both based in Buenos Aires and vied for the title of South America’s best in the Copa Libertadores Final last season.
