For the first time in Libertadores history (59th edition), perhaps for the first time in & # 39; any major tournament, the final was suspended due to accidents; more shame than mournful. The sad honor corresponds to the Argentine football and security forces of the city & # 39; Buenos Aires. The most elementary fallen since spring this game exists: how to protect delegation is due to arrive by visitors & # 39; safe way at the stadium where they play the game. And in & # 39; normal conditions.
Some police capital will elaborated so insane insane plan: the bus crossed the mouth of the streets with & # 39; & # 39 thousands; fans & # 39; around River. How to take a torch in & # 39; dust reviewed. The barbarità generated the expected result: the misfits devastated with several stone bus glasses and had an impact on some players. Boca refused to play. Without the slightest doubt, was not emotionally able to do it and there began embarrassment. The final undergone Saturday to Sunday and Sunday until God provides, because men, hard …
This time it was the logic in football: if f & # 39; a country that could have happened, was in Argentina, and if it had occurred in & # 39; specific link was a River-Boca. They are one hundred and ten years & # 39; extreme rivalry concentrated in a bottle & # 39; 90 minutes. came very thick juice. They took so much rivalry that led to it, that little may have. The passion of football is beautiful to experience, but when it reaches such irrational levels they lose all meaning and nature.
That irrazzjonalità created demonic spawn: the barrabrava, fan deformation left to grow and it is now difficult to dominate. That monster has established a phenomenal business around football and not willing to lose. Expanding, threatening, sell and falsify tickets, selling T-shirts, hats, scarves, "cure" cars. Find a nice place to leave the car five blocks & # 39; away from the stadium and, when closed, with dark skin and a guy image lejnu approaching and says, b & # 39; voice & # 39; friendly and intimidating: "Give five hundred I take care of your car, dad." And since the idea is to see the game and get & # 39; back alive home (and car b & # 39; robust), the normal fans give the 500, very disgusted. It is all about, ten blocks & # 39; away. Of course, do not take care of & # 39; something and see the game.
And in such classics they make real fortunes. In error, on Friday, police arrested "cavern", the head of the brave bar & # 39; Rio. She had $ 15,000, 10 million pesos (equivalent to another & # 39; $ 255,000 and 300 tickets for location). It is believed that, as retaliation, Cavernita ordered his partners to promote the riots. They used to ask clubs for tickets to watch the games; now to sell. Then go the same way, the bad: put a bunch of & # 39; fifty, come in & # 39; duced gate and attacking. The poor controls and police force are in place.
In 2017 a similar event happened to this River-Boca when the bus & # 39; Borussia Dortmund was attacked by three explosives while the team was moving towards the stadium to face to Monaco for the Champions League. It was the quarter-finals and the game was postponed to tomorrow. Marc Bartra, Spanish defender of Borussia, suffered serious injuries: broken beam in & # 39; one run and glasses fitted in both arms and hands. It should have been run.
The end of the world … Also: the end of the third world. And we are.

But it was not because of the violence between fans, who showed exemplary behavior (fans & # 39; Dortmund even deposited in & # 39; home with their counterparts & # 39; Monaco had to stay) but an attack by a private individual to terrorist purposes or for economic reasons. EAt the end of & # 39; December, hundreds & # 39; Flamengo barrabravas without tickets broke the fences & # 39; Maracana and entered the office sector devastated and generated panic in the definition of the Copa Sudamericana. It was very serious. However, the final acted.
But that Flamengo and Independent, although he had a stellar match between big ones, did not sign the & # 39; who brought football & # 39; America the & # 39; South River was awarded to Boca, which the journalism world has put its focus on La Bombonera first and the following
The "end of times" promotion ended in "Role & # 39; every time", as well defined Claudio Cerviño in his Nation column. Or, as Gabriel Meluk of & # 39; El Tiempo tweeted, "end of the world was in the third world".
Number & # 39; journalists from Italy, Spain, Japan, England, Slovenia, Colombia, Uruguay, Chile, Ecuador, the United States, collected On Saturday Monumental, especially attracted by Well over 60,000 fans a decent River that left in ticket offices of & # 39; 2.7 million dollars.
And millions & # 39; fans waited in front of the television & # 39; good part of the world. We all feel the same sadness. They shame others, their own Argentines. There were no dead or injured, nor clashes between fans, but the feeling of & # 39; & # 39 ;, fear of & # 39; organizational incapacity is a shame. And many people wanted these games played during the week, night and public visitor. A delirium
If, in itself, is not subject to Argentina and struggling to be fit anyway, society is experiencing a stage & # 39; special strain, grown from extreme and tumultuża policy. The Portuguese Antonio Guterres, UN general secretary to arrive in & # 39; Bus Buenos Aires on Wednesday, showed in & # 39; interview his concern about escalation "of & # 39; awesome & # 39 ;, intolerance failure & # 39; & # 39 confidence in; many countries. " It seemed he was talking about Argentina b & # 39; in particular.
This River Boca growing as call & # 39; waiting to President MACRI, five days before the start of & # 39; The first G20 Summit in Latin America, bringing together the leaders of the two countries and the largest countries in the world. The capital of tango will be protected for several days. You & # 39; caring Putin, Trump, Merkel, Xi Jinping, MACRON, etc. If not by bus & # 39; Boca …?
Boca was attacked by a few meters from the river into the public Monumental. He arrived shocked, upset and with his master Pablo Pérez affected in & # 39; one eye by cutting. So can not go and play a game, except this final. He had the right and reason did not.
"It had earlier logical work had nothing & # 39; to share with the game & # 39; before," said his coach, Guillermo Barros Schelotto. It is true not think about exaggerations: Perez ophthalmologist examined the witnesses and found it reduced b & # 39; 60% of the vision of his left eye. And this is not the table football, the dolls break and we put another. The confrontation was denaturalizzata b & # 39; sports mode.
The sensation left, the actions and words of the president of Boca del Carmen, Daniel angelic, Boca is first sought to leave on Saturday Monumental; then see how to avoid the one remaining without commitment & # 39; 'without presentation ", ie, the postponement led by CONMEBOL.
And it will go in the CONMEBOL meeting in Paraguay on Tuesday to agree on a date with a & # 39; new dispute: he wants the items and serious sanction River. Boca m & # 39; still want to play, taking revenge of 2015, when he was knocked out by CONMEBOL Cup in fan & # 39; color pepper spray deposited before several players & # 39; River Plate. F & # 39; then it was well punished River was crowned champion. Now, before most similar event, Boca calls the River is well punished, which, moreover, is accused of having great political weight in Confederation.
Someone who launched CONMEBOL will take the duel in & # 39; neutral terms. Impossible: River declines. Moreover, politically sane wants to host …? This means that receiving 25,000 fans & # 39; other than Boca and River. You assign army to control. Attention Santiago de Chile the next year, when they reach the final only Cup …!
These are just the first chapters & # 39; history. It will continue.
