Argentine football is famous for its passion, so the final of the Copa Libertadores between wild rival Boca Juniors and River Plate may not be for the faint-hearted.
In fact, a radio station has decided to make a special comment to reassure fans with heart problems during the two-legged competition on November 10th and 24th.
As reported by Clarin.com, AM550 Radio Colonia is broadcasting a quiet version of the live coverage with the goal of peacefully telling the story of the game without increasing the listener's heart rate.

The Argentine Society of Cardiology, supported by the Glacier mineral water brand, is behind the transfer, while Eduardo Caimi and Leonardo Uranga will provide the commentary.
Cardiologist Gonzalo Diaz Babio will also be contributing to the program to provide advice on how to avoid stress in moments of high drama.
Stadium noise is replaced by Zen music, while Caimi and Uranga do not raise their voices or increase the speed of their speech.
Boca and River have already participated in 15 finals of the Copa Libertadores, but they have never met before.
It is expected that the audience numbers for the final are enormous, since on both routes no supporters are allowed. However, it remains to be seen how the popular version of Radio Colonia works.
