Five unanswered questions about the Copa Libertadores final

River Plate fans clashing with riot police after the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final against Boca Juniors on Saturday was postponed

River Plate fans have started to enter the Monumental.

Three years ago, a Copa Libertadores last-16 tie between the two rivals was abandoned at half-time after Boca fans attacked the River players with pepper spray in the tunnel.

Reports said Boca's Pablo Perez and Gonzalo Lamardo had been taken by ambulance to hospital, the former with slivers of broken glass in his eyes and the latter a cut on his head. The match was cancelled, there are calls to include "river Plate" technical defeat. "Today, we have new facts and medical evaluations which do not guarantee safe conditions".

Boca wants Copa Libertadores final suspension after attack

Boca asked the soccer body earlier on Sunday to suspend the game and sanction River for the behaviour of their fans.

After a number of postponements, CONMEBOL chiefs made a decision to reschedule the game for this evening at 8pm local time.

It did so after representatives from Boca argued that playing the game so soon after Saturday's attack would be unfair.

When will it land and why should we care — NASA's Insight Mission
Confirmation will be made through monitoring of InSight's radio signals by a variety of spacecraft and Earth-based telescopes. Last week the space agency announced that it has selected the location where its Mars 2020 Rover will land on the Red Planet.

The footage of the astonishing moment a insane female fan of Boca's rivals River Plate was filmed bending down to fix the flares round the child's belly, went viral. "We want both teams to have time to recover".

The first leg, held at Boca's stadium La Bombonera, ended in a 2-2 draw.

Football in South America is sometimes a violent affair, and in Argentina, no fans have been allowed to attend away matches since 2013 after violence claimed the life of a fan.

Interceptions give Bears Thanksgiving win over Lions
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford did a good job of getting the ball out quickly although that limited his shots downfield. I'd say Pace is doing just that, and it was all cemented back in 2017 with these two selections in the fourth round.

"We can not play. They are forcing us to play the match". The visitor had agreed to play with "conditions of equality".

Indeed, the victor of the Copa Libertadores is due to play in the Club World Cup on December 18, meaning that, should the game not be cancelled completely and a victory awarded to Boca, there is a three-week window in which to get the game played.

"Matches are won and lost on the pitch, that's my personal perspective, but I have a responsibility as club president and that's why I have to stick to the statute", Angelici said at a press conference. "What we've lived through has nothing to do with a Libertadores Cup final. regardless of whether it's against River or any other team, both teams have to reach the final under equal conditions".

Meanwhile, Manchester City are also linked with moves for numerous top-rated players in and across Europe. We'll try and get something out of that game", he told his club's website.

"They are the mafia of Argentine football", he said.
