BUENOS AIRES (ARGENTINA) – The bus that was transferring Boca Juniors footballers to the Monumental stadium was attacked by a group of mobs who broke the windows, injuring various people who were traveling inside, including two players, Perez and Jara. The executives of the team 'xeneize' have asked for the suspension of the final that must begin at 17 (21 Italian). There are already at least 50,000 spectators in the stadiums of the River Stadium, while now many others have been blocked and can not enter.
Some doctors in the South American confederation, Conmebol, have entered the locker room where Boca footballers have taken refuge and are imminent decisions about a delayed start or even a postponement of the Cup final return. The two presidents Daniel Angelici (Boca) and Rodolfo D'Onofrio (River) are meeting with representatives of law enforcement and the summits of Conmebol to make a decision.
Boca insists on the postponement claiming that four of his players were injured, in particular Pablo Perez and Leonardo Jara, two holders who now would not be able to take the field. Then there are other Boca players, the club points out, that have been poisoned because of the tear gas used by the police to disperse the River thugs who had attacked the yellow-blue bus.
According to the TN news channel, "it is a certain fact that the game will not be played", even if official confirmation is missing ", and it seems that the match will be postponed to next Wednesday and will take place behind closed doors. In the Monumental stadium it was present, and it was already in the stands of honor at the time of the attack on the Boca bus, also the president of Fifa Gianni Infantino.
