River Plate vs Boca Juniors return leg postponed for second day running

Boca-River Libertadores final postponed again after attack

"After the acts of violence suffered in the vicinity of the stadium, having noted the magnitude and seriousness of them and the consequences they have generated in the establishment, Boca considers that these conditions are not met and requests the suspension of the match".

"We don't want there to be any excuses that conditions were not equal for both teams", Alejandro Dominguez, the president of the South American football confederation CONMEBOL, said on TV.

Among the sanctions available under Conmebol's Article 18 are "disqualification from competitions and exclusion from future competitions".

Another issue which needs addressing is that if the final doesn't go ahead at River Plate's Estadio Monumental, it could take place at another neutral venue and behind closed doors.
