Security forces stand guard as supporters of River Plate leave the Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires after authorities postponed the all Argentine Copa Libertadores second leg final match between River Plate and Boca Juniors until Sunday following an att

Boca asked doctors to examine their players minutes before their Copa Libertadores final against arch-rivals after tear gas fired by police at River fans drifted into the Boca team bus, local media reported.

River Vs Boca Juniors Postponed After Players Attacked With Tear Gas
Copa Libertadores final hit by pre-match violence

The second leg of the 2018 Copa Libertadores between River Plate and Boca Juniors has been postponed due to crowd trouble and safety concerns.

There were suggestions that there was pressure on Conmebol to keep the match on schedule to meet television obligations. The bus was then subjected to a hail of objects, which succeeded in breaking at least three windows.

However, in the build-up to one of the most eagerly awaited matches in recent South American football history, chaos ensued, making it all but impossible for the game to go ahead. "The police were overwhelmed by all the vandalism and had to disperse the River fans with tear gas", said the unnamed official.

The prince, Saudia Arabia's de facto ruler, "hates it more than I do", Trump added about the killing. The killers of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi may have gotten more than they bargained for.

"There are many players who were coughing, with the feeling of needing to vomit", said Carlos Tevez.

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.

The Superclasico is regarded as one of the football world's greatest rivalries, not just for the play on the pitch (if that even eventuates) but for the potentially chaotic passion of its fans - fully on display when Boca supporters packed out their home stadium simply to witness its players in training before the big final. "They're forcing us to play the game". Had River won, Boca would surely have appealed against the result and in the circumstances, it would have been hard for anybody to concentrate on the actual game.

Marcus Rashford deadline for lucrative deal set to thwart Real Madrid
One name which has come up for the same is Marcus Rashford , with The Sun reporting that Madrid are planning a £50 Million offer. Mourinho even admitted after United's 3-2 win over Newcastle last month that Rashford cut a "sad" figure on the pitch.

Carlos Tevez believes (much like everyone else outside of CONMEBOL) are in no condition to play the final tonight. We don't have a leg to stand on: if we have to play, we are going to play.

River later announced the match had been suspended and would take place at 8pm on Sunday. Argentine football has been shamed, tainted nearly beyond fix, and it is hard to see any improvement possible with such criminal incompetence reigning among those entrusted with the organisation and safety of the sport.

"The team which loses will carry a cross for the rest of their life", was how Marcelo Matador Salas, the Chilean striker who used to play for River and Lazio, described it.
