Copa Libertadores final: Infantino doesn't want moved Superclasico to become trend

Copa Libertadores final: Infantino doesn't want moved Superclasico to become trend

The second leg of the Superclasico between Boca Juniors and River Plate that made up the final was delayed and eventually postponed after River Plate fans attacked Boca's team bus outside of the Millonarios' home stadium. Then the second leg on November 24 had to be postponed due to crowd trouble near the Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires that left fans and several players injured as River Plate fans attacked the Boca team bus.

The email states there is a limit to the number of the tickets, which, according to Real Madrid, was agreed with Copa Libertadores organiser Conmebol.

The match is due to be played in the Spanish capital on December 9, but River Plate said they "confirmed their rejection of the change of location".

The first leg ended 2-2 but before the return fixture an attack left a number of players, including Boca's former Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus striker Carlos Tevez, reportedly suffering from dizziness and vomiting and requiring treatment from club doctors.

Discussions saw the game suspended until Sunday, but it was then postponed again as CONMEBOL accepted Boca players were in no condition to play.

"It is incomprehensible that the most important "Clasico" of Argentine football can not take place as normal in the same country that in the coming days is hosting a G20 [summit]".

"Argentine football as a whole. can not allow a handful of thugs to stop the Superclasico from taking place in our country".
