Boca Juniors train ahead of 'Superclasico' final

River Plate vs Boca Juniors LIVE stream

Boca Juniors and River Plate are famous rivals, and the conclusion of the Copa Libertadores final between the two was always like to provoke a reaction or two.

Boca official Daniel Angelici met with River Plate president Rodolfo D'Onofrio and CONMEBOL officials to discuss whether the match would go ahead. One of the more acutely affected was Boca captain and midfielder Pablo Perez, who was hit in the eye by a shard of glass.

It had earlier been delayed from 5pm to 6pm due to the bus attack. Boca have asked, as a minimum that the game is delayed.

Met by a barrage of River Plate fans, the Boca Juniors bus was pelted with missiles and, crucially, tear gas.

A number of players, including Boca's former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, were reportedly suffering from dizziness and vomiting and being treated by club doctors. "It came in the bus from everywhere", added central defender Carlos Izquierdoz.

A statement from Conmebol's medical commission shown on television said some players had suffered "superficial cuts" and that there was no medical reason to suspend the match.

I don't know if anybody's going to be able to conclude that the Crown Prince did it", Trump said Thursday. It would be the first official contact between the prince and Erdogan. "I hate the cover-up".

Argentinian football has a reputation for chaos and violence, and the "Superclasico" rivalry between these two sides lived up to the billing, and then some, before the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final - South America's equivalent of Europe's Champions League.

Footage taken before the match was scheduled to start appeared to show a young girl having flares taped to her body beneath her clothing in an apparent attempt to get them past security.

"There was a lack of control in the last streets close to the Monumental". Lamardo had trouble breathing because of tear gas.

"Because of the wind and the broken windows, it entered the bus".

Boca and River drew the first leg 2-2 on November 11, a game that was delayed 24 hours itself because of a waterlogged pitch at Boca's stadium.

Away fans are banned from the attending the game, which is a 66,000 capacity sell-out.
