Bus attack postpones South American soccer final

Boca Juniors tear-gassed after bus windows broken

Boca Juniors tear-gassed after bus windows broken

Boca bus attacked by River Plate fans upon arrival for second leg tie, following a 2-2 draw in the first leg.

The Copa Libertadores final was postponed Sunday after Boca Juniors players were injured when their bus was attacked by River Plate fans.

As it was, the scenes that followed showed any separation was clearly inadequate. The bus was then subjected to a hail of objects, which succeeded in breaking at least three windows.

The effect was twofold.

"I have asked the inspectors to act quickly, to make it possible for the game to be played", he said.

Boca's Pablo Perez suffered injuries to his arm and eye and could not take part in the game. There was clearly no common sense in the idea that any quality of spectacle could be maintained under such conditions.

A Quick Reminder Why Everyone Is So Furious About Ivanka Trump's Emails
In the wake of the news, several lawmakers ridiculed President Trump for having attacked Clinton over her email use. Trump used a private email", Lowell's spokesperson, Peter Mirijanian, said in a statement.

There is, however, plenty of talk that the game could end up being played behind closed doors in the middle of the week, which would be hugely disappointing.

Just minutes before the delayed kick-off, the teams had still not warmed up on the field. The eventual 7:15 p.m. start time also passed by without teams taking to the pitch.

True, there were security considerations. Away supporters are banned from football matches in Argentina due to recurring violence in and around the grounds.

Boca Juniors secretary César Martucci said that as far as he was aware the tear gas that made its way inside the bus came from the police who were trying to control the fans.

Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case.

Despite the damage done to the bus, and the injuries suffered, Conmebol was reported to be forcing the game to go ahead.

LeBron James didn't want to trade Kyrie Irving
The goal isn't to go out there and try to get as many wins as you can", Smith told The Athletic . The Cavs are 2-13 and franchise player Kevin Love is out indefinitely following toe surgery.

The delay was announced after Boca players were hurt when their bus was attacked on its way into the stadium, organizers said.

CONMEBOL did not make an official statement about the postponement.

Perhaps commercial motives were upmost in the mind of the administrators.

"One can't play in these conditions", CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominguez told reporters. We have been waiting for seven hours.

"Both clubs came to an agreement, a gentlemen's agreement".

The match between Boca Juniors and River Plate has been postponed until Sunday at 5pm GMT, according to reports. Time is tight, for one.

Former 49ers punter, Aussie rugby star Hayne charged with sexual assault
The woman originally made a complaint to the NRL's Integrity Unit about the incident who referred the woman to the police. Hayne's representative Wayne Beavis opted not to comment when contacted by AAP after the allegations arose.

The biggest game in South American club football has been called off after fans attacked a team bus in Argentina, leaving several players injured. However, it is surely preferable to wait 24 hours, rather than play such a showpiece occasion in the shadow of chaos.
