Copa Libertadores final postponed due to attack on team bus, players

The Boca Juniors team bus leaves their hotel

Fans of Argentina's Boca Juniors attend a training session of the team at the La Bombonera stadium in Buenos Aires on November 22, 2018, ahead of the Copa Libertadores final against River Plate to be held on November 24.

The full document read: "I'm writing to you to inform about today's incidents in which Boca players suffered superficial skin injuries to their arms, legs, face and torso, with two players [those sent to hospital] reportedly suffering eye injuries which our medical team has not been able to confirm".

As he made his way towards Boca's dressing room, television cameras caught Tevez retching, while his teammate Nahitan Nandez shouted "they are all motherf*****s".

Clarin said six players had vomited in the dressing-room after gas drifted into bus windows smashed by River fans outside the stadium.

Although River are slight favourites as the home team, they have not won any at home in the past 10 Superclasicos, with the last victory being in the first leg of a Copa Libertadores quarter-final in 2015.

It's understandable that Conmebol would want its showpiece game to go ahead, and the president of Argentina, Mauricio Macri, himself a former president of Boca, perhaps also had a vested interest in getting the game played given he hosts the G20 summit in Buenos Aires beginning on Thursday.

Tevez said they were being "obliged" to do so despite "being in no condition" while the midfielder Fernando Gago blamed the presidents of Conmebol and Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Early reports indicated that at least three Boca players were transported to hospital. A number of fans forced their way into the stadium, while there were sustained clashes between fans and police, who fired tear gas and rubber bullets.

Despite being taken to hospital for treatment, the player was named in the provisional starting lineup and medical services confirmed there were no medical grounds on which the match could be called off. On that occasion, Boca were disqualified from the competition. They're forcing us to play. I had an allergic reaction and there were players who could not breathe. We have been waiting for seven hours.

All the while thousands of River supporters sat in the stands in nervous ignorance at what was going on in the bowels of the Monumental. However, it does now seem likely that the match will be suspended and take place at a later date.
