River Plate v Boca Juniors: Genoa offers to host Libertadores final

El Monumental will not host the return leg. GOAL

Alejandro Dominguez, CONMEBOL's president, eventually did the right thing, saying that the game would be postponed until 5 p.m. the following day.

"We decided that the match, if so defined, will be played outside Argentine territory", he said.

A meeting will take place on Tuesday at its headquarters near Asuncion, Paraguay, to determine the date and venue of the return leg.

However, Argentine football was disgraced after River fans threw stones and missiles at the Boca bus as it made its way to the stadium, breaking windows and injuring players.

The major difference between the attack by Boca fans three years ago and this one is that it took place within the club's iconic Bombonera stadium, where the team is ultimately responsible for player safety.

The images were shared on social media and police, using specialised software, reviewed social network activity in detail to identify the woman and arrest her.

Serie A side Genoa offered to host the final due to the Argentinian side's close ties to the Italian city.

The CONMEBOL winners play their first match in the tournament on December 18 and could face UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid in the final.

Time to play the match is limited, as the victor will represent South America in the FIFA Club World Cup which kicks off in the United Arab Emirates on December 12. Sputnik spoke to Gustavo Granero, a Boca Juniors fan, about whether the game should be played and how River should be punished.

The second leg (the first leg ended 2-2 at Boca) was called off on Saturday after Boca's bus was attacked, with several players receiving injuries via the broken glass and others feeling the affect of pepper spray.

The South American football confederation CONMEBOL confirmed on Tuesday that it was moving the final outside the country.

This is the first time that Argentina's two biggest clubs meet in the final of South America's premier club competition.

"Matches are won and lost on the pitch, that's my personal perspective, but I have a responsibility as club president and that's why I have to stick to the statute", Angelici said at a press conference. "Either all actors of South American football unite to remove violence, or violence will finish [the sport]", the letter said.
