Argentine football is known for its passion, so the final of the Copa Libertadores between fierce rivals Boca Juniors and River Plate may not be for the weak.
In fact, one radio station has decided to offer a special commentary to calm down fans with heart problems during the two-legged contest on 10 and 24 November.
As reported by Clarin.com, AM550 Radio Colonia will broadcast a calm version of live match reporting with the aim of peacefully telling the story of the game without increasing the listening frequency of the listener.

The first stage of the Copa Libertadores final will take place on November 10 in La Bombonera
The Argentine Society of Cardiology – supported by Glacier, a brand of mineral water – supports the transmission, while Eduardo Caimi and Leonardo Uranga will comment.
Cardiologist Gonzalo Diaz Babio will also be present during the broadcast to give advice on how to avoid stress during moments of high drama.
The stadium sound is being replaced by zen music, while Caimi and Uranga do not raise their voices or increase the tempo of their speech.
Between them Boca and River have participated in 15 previous finals of the Copa Libertadores, but they have never met before.
It is expected that the viewing of the radio spectrum for the final will be huge, because supporters from outside are not allowed on both legs, but it remains to be seen how popular the quiet version of Radio Colonia will be.
