River Plate take Viagra ahead of San Jose clash
The Argentine outfit are hopeful that the medication will help them rise to the occasion when they play at 3,700 meters above sea level in Bolivia


River Plate are turning to Sildenafil, more commonly known as Viagra, ahead of their Copa Libertadores match against San Jose in order to fight altitude sickness.

The Argentine outfit face a daunting trip to Oruro on Thursday for their Group 6 opener against the Bolivian side.

San Jose play their home games at the Estadio Jesus Bermudez at approximately 3700 meters above sea level, making altitude problems a major problem for visiting teams.

River are hopeful of having found the answer to such issues, though.

“Viagra will stimulate the circulation of oxygen in the blood and helps the players breathe better,” a member of River Plate’s medical staff told Clarin.

Additionally, River’s players will arrive at the stadium only two hours before the game kicks off.

River and San Jose will also have to deal with Tigres UANL and Juan Aurich in their group, with the Mexican outfit recording a 3-0 win over their Peruvian counterparts in their opening game.
