Yesterday saw the 29th anniversary of the (in)famous match termed The Battle of Macul. Military police on the pitch, sendings off and a player bitten on the bum by a dog. You just don't get this in the Champions League.



The second is called the impossible goal:

The second goal might be "impossible", but Colo Colo's first was incredible, and their third and Boca's, weren't bad either.

A minor curiosity that I couldn't help noticing, but any idea as to the Boca shirt having a white border on it? I wouldn't have mentioned it, but initially I thought it was down to colour tv shimmer.

This from the link to the story of the night had me laughing:

"Boca tried to make peace with the Chilean side and invited them to play the Cup of Friendship in Buenos Aires on the very next year as a goodwill gesture. But their intentions failed miserably as the teams started fighting each other on the field in that disastrous friendly."

Not the best picture but I can't see any white on the strip.
