yeah Boca supporters have gone waaaay too far here

If Conmebol was serious, that game would be over now and Boca kicked out

Totally.

That said. Who was naive enough to not think something like this was going to happen in either game? More chances in the Bombonera since the pitch is right next to the stands, but really security should have been taken to the max by Libertadores organization (cause Boca or River were not going to care enough).

Apparently the police who were supposed to be covering a position were absent.

Boca should lose this match and be suspended for about a year from international competitions.

I think that, by the regulament, it falls totally into the club.
Conmebol should have known better, but they never do.

They should also punish Boca, but probably they won't.

Yeah argie commentators are saying Conmebol officials are set on playing the second half. Its rewarding the team with the laughable organization who could not medt the minimum requirements of security.


Edit. Lack of collaboration by Boca players to leave with River ones is stupidly childish.

Quarters:

Internacional x Independiente Santa Fe

Emelec x Tigres

Guarani x Racing

Cruzeiro x River Plate


Honestly all 8 are respectable teams who can advance further. No one to be wrote off.
Inter is generally appointed favorite cause of the big/expensive players.
Then there's 3 more big clubs and 4 teams who all showed good things

Did anyone else read this? They want to take a World Cup play-off spot in South America because of what Boca Juniors did :fp:

If anything CONMEBOL should have 5 guaranteed spots and one playoff spot since there is a lot of quality teams in South America and every World Cup at least two good teams are left out in favor of low performing European teams simply because Europe is seen as the global capital of soccer. Blatter is only trying to do this to get votes from the Oceania region and I hope his corrupt ass doesn't get re-elected again. He has to go.

River are through to semi final after butchering Cruziero.

I hope it's River's time this time in Libertadores. Won it last in 1996 with Crespo, it's about fucking time.... Tigres, Inter and Racing Club/Guarani to make the final 4. Goooo Riverrrr

Cruzeiro just fell apart... That's the cost of dismantling a winner team.

Inter and River are getting better at the right time... Would be a great final.

On paper, Inter and Tigres are really impressive (and expensive) teams.

Tigers got Damm, Gignac, Sobis, Aquino, Arevalo & Pizarro

Inter got D'Alessandro, Lisandro Lopez, Nilmar, Valdivia, Dourado & Aranguiz, Juan...

It is going to be very difficult for Inter to defend a 2-1 lead in Mexico.

Could go either way, 50-50. I want Inter to advance though, just for a classic final.
