The simple context in which an event of this magnitude is triggered is usually reason enough to put together major protection planning. However, this time it will be about the largest operation ever carried out for a Superclásico in recent years: there will be some 1,500 municipal police officers distributed to welcome the 84,000 fans authorized to enter the stadium starting from 1pm, when the doors will open.

The last confrontation of the Millonario group took place last Sunday, before the match against Banfield, in what was an internal brawl that would have generated a new break in the bar, and therefore, caused the emergence of a third faction.

Likewise, the clashes within Los Borrachos del Tablón are not recent history. They started dating at the end of January, when a fight outside the Monumental involved 30 prisoners and the seizure of knives, sticks and stones.

This led the prosecutor Celsa Ramírezappointed by the Special Prosecutor’s Office for Mass Events of the City of Buenos Aires, to open a case.
