The moment of the tumult in the stands of Boca.
Boca’s arrival in La Rioja on Tuesday evening was a celebration. Since the plane that transported the battle team arrived in the city located in the central east of the province, a real revolution has occurred with the fans who have accompanied every movement of the Xeneize delegation in a caravan. And this Wednesday, in the preview of the match for the 16th final that Boca disputes with Ferro from 4 in the afternoon, everything went on with the same melody. Everything changed a few minutes before the players went out on the pitch to warm up. It was 3.12pm when TyC Sports cameras captured a savage assault in one of the side stands of the Carlos Mercado Luna stadium.
The riots were recorded on the blue and gold side. And it seems, everything would be triggered by a flag. What happened? As it was possible to reconstruct through the images, a young man with a yellow jersey with the name of Marcos Rojo on the back wanted to draw out a flag that would cover the view of the audience towards the playing field. When they saw what was happening, a group of fans went looking for him and beat him savagely.
A few minutes later, when the players went out to warm up, the problem was gone.
