Players bus attacked in Argentina

CONMEBOL President

CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez said: "The conditions are not equal and therefore we will postpone this final".

The decisive leg was scheduled to be played on Saturday but was suspended until Sunday after Boca players were injured when their bus was attacked by River fans outside their Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires.

"After the violent acts suffered in the vicinity of the stadium, the magnitude and serious consequences for the squad, Boca believe that these conditions are not sufficient and requests the suspension of the match, and that CONMEBOL issues sanctions in correspondence with Article 18".

The two teams agreed to play Sunday evening instead of delaying the match start a few hours as originally planned, the president of the South American Football Confederation told reporters.

Boca argued their players were in no condition to play the game on Saturday and raised the same point again on Sunday.

The footage of the astonishing moment a insane female fan of Boca's rivals River Plate was filmed bending down to fix the flares round the child's belly, went viral.

On Saturday, Boca said they were in no position to play the game due to the injured parties needing medical treatment at hospital.

Boca also said it wants River to be punished after the attack near the Monumental de Nunez stadium. Boca fans were prevented from attending due to a blanket ban on away supporters in Argentina.

The first leg on November 11 ended 2-2 at Boca's La Bombonera Stadium.

A decision on whether the match will be rearranged for another date has yet to be announced.

Boca Juniors are refusing to play the final of the Copa Libertadores.

"CONMEBOL demands from the competent authorities' immediate action and offers all its collaboration to identify, capture and prosecute those responsible".

After discussions that led to several delays, the game was eventually suspended for 24 hours until 5pm local time (8pm GMT) on Sunday . How do you take this decision now?

He tweeted: "Boca president Daniel Angelici & River president Rodolfo D'Onofrio will go to CONMEBOL for a meeting on Tuesday to arrange this". I will speak to both presidents.

However, the Copa Libertadores victor books a place at the Club World Cup which starts just four days later in the UAE.
