Boca Juniors Players Ambushed And Hospitalised Following Sickening Bus Attack From River Plate Fans

The Boca Juniors Bush Was Attacked On Their Way To Play River Plate

A Superclasico final in the Copa Libertadores was always going to be a tense affair but things have gotten out of hand tonight before the second leg in Argentina.

The Boca Juniors bus has been attacked in disgusting scenes on their way into the River Plate Stadium causing a number of players to be hospitalised according to reports.

The away team were making their way into the Monumental Stadium when it was attacked with a relentless assault of bottles and pepper spray and it now appears as if the match could be delayed.

A number of players are reported to be unable to play and in tears in the wake of the attack with the atmosphere outside of the ground getting out of hand in remarkable style.

Reports are also emerging that a number of the Boca players have been vomiting after the pepper spray attack and are in no position to play the game.

The two old rivals are meeting in the final of the equivalent of the South American Champions League for the first time and although there was expected to be a fizzing atmosphere, it is clear that things have taken an extremely worrying turn tonight.

The first leg at La Bombonera ended in a 2-2 which left the tie on a knife-edge ahead of this return game and it now appears as if tensions have boiled over.

Carlos Tevez is perhaps the most high profile player involved for either side with the former Man United star a Boca legend but he has certainly been caught up in the panic with pictures of the player being helped into the changing rooms also emerging on social media.

What a mess!
