"The River Plate will present the legal arguments and appeals concerning the decision taken today (yesterday, ed.) By CONMEBOL regarding the change of venue for the Copa Libertadores final, the economic sanction and the closure of the plant for two games. "
Also discontent of Boca Juniors who, already in unsuspecting times, has officially requested that the final return is not played, considering, therefore, that it is more appropriate to assign the Copa Libertadores to the table disqualifying the River Plate.
This position is also confirmed by a statement in which it is even estimated to go before the TAS to assert its reasons. Both companies have seven days to present their appeals from the time of notification, as announced by the president of Conmebol Alejandro Dominguez.
