Should disqualify River and hand the title to Boca for max carnage.

So seems either Fox or because the G20 are in town midweek are the main reasons it’s played today.

10.15 ko now. 

 

Is there an hour's time difference to be taken into account with regards to the times being announced. A message just popped up on Freesport to say that the game has been put back to 21:20, which doesn't fit in with the time you have quoted above.

Just watched footage of the bus arriving. Seems beyond belief that there would not be massive security in place to avoid such an eventuality. Astonishing lack of organisation!

Freesport have just updated their onscreen message and it has now changed to 22:15. Apologies if I seemed to be disbelieving you in any way, certainly wasn't my intention.

No worries squire. Pretty fascinating keeping tabs on this. Drs claiming they gave everyone the all clear and release a statement and then Boca claim they denied the doctors access to the players.

It's on 64 if you've retuned recently. I can't even get it so I'll be pathetically watching it on my phone.

Some quotes from reluctant Boca players via Caracol Deportes. 

Carlos Tevez: “We are not in a position to play the game, they are forcing us to play the game. Pablo has a patch in his eye.” 

Fernando Gago: “We were very surprised, many players suffered, we struggled to breathe. It’s not the best way to prepare a game.”

Odds on a red card in the game under evens. Usually about 5/6-1 any normal match.

 

madness.

Boca players need to man up and remember they're in a final. Should give them an extra wee bit of motivation.

Boca told they are disqualified if they don’t play. Game pushed back another twenty mins.

 

Bonkers.

 

Hopefully not repeating the 1985 "you have to play the game to keep the peace". 

 

Players injured and one reported to be be going to hospital.

Have to say the build-up to this game is far more entertaining than our actual game was this afternoon 🙃

Football wise I can't see past a River win. Especially now after what's happened.

Can see this game ending up in a bloodbath. Appears to be little sympathy from River, so any chance of a mutual protest seems out the window.

That's an easy perspective from a nice comfy couch though, you'd feel different if you'd been in a bus that had been pelted with dozens of missiles, had the windows tanned and breathed in tear gas. Small chance that might affect even you I reckon!

Certainly the better side in the first leg. Could have been out of sight.

 

If Boca did somehow win this it would be remarkable and utter carnage. The fall out will go on and on.

If that is the security their authorities have for the bus arriving I dread to think what could happen to the Boca players and staff if they win it in River's backyard

I hope people aren't thinking Boca are a little cuddly club and River are the nasty bad guys. On this occasion yes but neither support are sweethearts.
