Copa Libertadores Final To Be Played Outside Of Argentina

Copa Libertadores Final To Be Played Outside Of Argentina

On Monday, Boca petitioned Conmebol's independent disciplinary body to have River kicked out of the competition - and hence Boca awarded overall victory - over the attack on Saturday that caused the final second leg to be called off.

The Copa Libertadores soccer final between River Plate and Boca Juniors will take place in early December and will be played outside Argentina after crowd trouble forced the game to be postponed last week, organizers said on Tuesday.

Boca players Pablo Perez and Gonzalo Lamardo were treated at a hospital following the incident, which saw projectiles launched at the vehicle, smashing several windows. Aguilera is also reporting that Boca Juniors' firm stance is to not play the game in any other circumstances, because it does not want to play it, and it will use every resource to push for the game to be forfeited on River's behalf.

Conmebol could instead force the second leg to be played behind closed doors or transfer the match to a neutral stadium. The 1st leg ended 2-all at Boca's Ground. "CONMEBOL will decide but it's logical that the game is played at River and with fans provided safety is guaranteed".

Social media is full of speculation the game will go ahead in Paraguay on December 9.

"The new final date will be analysed and decided at a meeting in Asuncion on Tuesday 27 at 10am with the presidents of the finalist clubs, Boca Juniors and River Plate".

Despite the fact that a number of Boca players were ready to take the field, made a decision to postpone the game until at least Sunday.

The River plate president insisted that it was only because of his support for Boca's request to have the match postponed on Saturday that it was not played there and then.

Conmebol's decision to move the match away from Argentina may have been influenced by the G20 Summit, which begins in Buenos Aires on Friday and will take up much of the city's police and security resources.

The Boca players and president, Daniel Angelici, however, insisted that they were still in no fit state to take part.

"Deep, in fact, are the bonds that unite the two Argentine football clubs - both founded by Genoese immigrants at the beginning of the twentieth century - with the Ligurian capital", Genoa's government said. Football is not what we saw on the weekend.
