"The conditions are not equal, given there is a team that was attacked, said CONMEBOL president Dominguez".
The match between the rivals from Buenos Aires was due to be played on Sunday after initially being postponed on Saturday following the attack near River's Monumental stadium, which left Boca players with injuries from shards of broken glass and suffering the effects of smoke inhalation. However, after further conversations between the two clubs and CONMEBOL have resulted in a postponement of the game today.
The rescheduled second leg of the Copa Libertadores final between River Plate and Boca Juniors was postponed again on Sunday hours before it was due to start, after Boca complained the match could not be played under fair conditions.
It did so after representatives from Boca argued that playing the game so soon after Saturday's attack would be unfair. However, city government yesterday ordered River Plate's stadium closed for exceeding capacity limits and failing to keep exits clear, casting doubt on whether the second leg will go ahead.
Maradona said he was appalled at what happened in the vicinity of River's El Monumental stadium, in the Belgrano district of the capital, where River supporters attacked a bus carrying Juniors players, reports Efe news.
