(Sporting Alert) — The second leg of Americas Superclasico clash between Brazil and Argentina has been delayed because of light problems in the stadium in Resistencia Wednesday night.
The game was scheduled to kick-off 8:00 PM ET, but the referee decided against starting the game until the middle pile of floodlights come on in the stadium.
All the lights were in good working condition during the warm-ups, but the middle section went out before the time of kick-off.
It is being reported that those in charge at the stadium are trying to get a generator to switch on the floodlights that are out.
Both teams have been blessed with a number of local talents who are eager to get the game underway.
Amongst the starters for Argentina tonight is former Liverpool winger Maxi Rodríguez, who returned home during the summer to continue his career, following a mix spell with the Premier League side.
Santos forward Neymar is amongst the starters tonight for Brazil, which take a 2-1 lead into the second leg, after winning the first leg at home.
Both teams are without several of its superstars.
The likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria, Pablo Zabaleta and Gonzalo Higuaín are not with the Argentina side, while Pato, Thiago Silva, Robinho, Hulk, Oscar, Kaka, David Luiz and Ramires, are some of the big names not included for Brazil.
