River Plate defeated San Lorenzo 1-0 and won their first Recopa Santander Sudamericana Tournament

 

Argentina's River Plate, winner of the 2014 Copa Sudamericana Tournament, won on Wednesday the title of the 2015 Recopa Sudamericana Tournament with a 1-0 victory over San Lorenzo in the second leg of the final.

In the first leg at the Monumental stadium, River Plate had won with the same score.

River Plate was the runner up in the Recopa Sudamericana in 1997 and 1998.

The Recopa Sudamericana Tournament has taken place since 1989, but was interrupted between 1999 and 2002.  Argentina's Boca Juniors is the top winner with four titles.

In its first stage, until 1998, the winners of the Libertadores Tournament faced the winner of the Supercopa.  But since 2003, the champions of the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana square off instead.
