It was a Superfinal "have dreamed" all fans. Those in the River, Boca and other clubs. In short, football fans wanted to see which of the two giants is the best on the field. But the endemic evil of Argentine football (violence that is not wanted or known to fight) has turned the dream into a nightmare. And now we have to go back "Desktop" to solve something that should not have happened even in a dream or a nightmare …

Finish of the Copa Libertadores 2018 edition It was postponed this Sunday at noon. He announced Conmebol head Alejandro Dominguez, who summoned the presidents of the two rival clubs to a meeting on Tuesday at 10 o'clock in Luque, where he is the headquarters of the agency that manages South American football. "Conditions are not given. We want the game to be played on equal terms and now can not happen. We believe in the show. We want there to be no excuse and who wins who makes the point of difference"He expressed the leader by Fox Sports as people entered the Monumental.
Alejandro Domínguez. The console owner wants Superfinal to be played yes or yes.
Talking about "postponing" rather than "suspending" is key to understand that the entity wants to give or say that the game is played, that the champion leaves everything he does on the field and that the Cup is delivered to the stadium and not to Conmebol's headquarters. The date when a priori is made isSaturday, December 8 at 17, Monumental. In the middle of the G20 meeting (until the 2nd of that month) and at the start of the World Cup of the Club (12th in Abu Dhabi).
Boca's posture changed overnight, literally. Sign the agreement-agreement with Domínguez and Rodolfo D'Onofrio, club owner Xeneize, Daniel Angelici, set aside his idea "matches are won on the field" and reluctantly accepted that the players. For this reason, he has already presented by mail and hand the 15 pages where the club requires points and sanction at the river. It requires the application of Article 18 of the Regulation, which provides for the possibility of being crowned Boca de Copa Libertadores, without playing.

It was a clear "break" between Angelici and the team because the referees (Carlos Tevez, Fernando Gago, Dario Benedetto and coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto) understand that Boca must be declared a champion without playing. Rebellion is one of the reasons why Boca did not want to appear this Sunday at 17, as agreed the day before Angelici, Dominguez, Onofrio and Infantino.
The FIFA President has just left this country on Sunday, but before He denied that he "threatened" Boca with sanctioning him if he did not appear to play. In the dialogue with the EFE agency, Infantino said, "I give up the unfortunate rumors that are spreading." I clearly did not ask at any time to play, nor did I threaten someone with disciplinary action if the game was not played. Simply because any decision related to this match is the exclusive responsibility of Conmebol and not FIFA. "Whoever attended the meeting counters the opposite, but on the record for fear of "retaliation" …
"Arousal" by Dominguez and Angelici was growing when he learned that Boca believes that what was signed by the presidents "is not mandatory". A source close to the owner of Conmebol told him bugle: "What was signed is mandatory, if it was not signed, Boca had to come out and play yes or yes. He came to this, so that Glass did not give it to the River on the ground without having played, because they will not be given to Mouth any more, as they say. "

In the river, on the other hand, I'm talking "betrayal" of Boca and "Vendetta" for what happened in 2015 in the tragic pepper gas episode. The surprise fell on Núñez at the same time that Angelici spoke about "go for everything and ask for the points." Onofrio could not believe, but he had to. And he said, "It was an agreement that Boca did not play in a disadvantage and the River, generously, said we did not want that advantage." "The Pact of Gentlemen" broke and reopened the crack among the presidents of Argentina's biggest clubs. Again, after the unfinished match for pepper gas. The Disciplinary Court in Conmebol will respond rejecting Boca's request and applying a serious financial penalty ($ 400,000 is being spoken) to the River. Will be seen.
In the middle of the whole salad there was someone who, at least, recognized his responsibility. The head of the City Government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, said: "The responsibility of the operation is that of the City Police." And he announced that he would ask a resume Secretary of Security (Marcelo D'Alessandro) to "establish responsibilities". Late, but something is something … This Sunday launched the last 30 inmates for the offense of "attack and resistance to authority." And prosecutor Adriana Bellavigna – one of the three investigating the resale that ended with the house of the bar "Cavern" Godoy interrogated – he initiated an own-initiative investigation to find some of those who attacked the Boca microphone. With all the videos running on social networks, one killer could not be identified who threw the projectile and injured Boca players?

And to condiment salad, Palmeiras (through Felipao Scolari) and Gremio (with his president Romildo Bolzan) appeared to demand that River be penalized and give Copa Libertadores to Boca. In the world of suspicions, will there be a joint presentation of Brazilian clubs who are on their way to the semifinals to try to get through the window in the World Cup of the Club? Into the Conmebol world everything is possible.
