Yes, BT Sport, merely hours after we've smashed Dundee (he says hopefully).
He's been given permission to travel although he's supposedly not allowed into the Bernabeu - believe that if you will.
Boca are expecting a decision on their appeal. Apparently they will be informed today. If they don't get a positive outcome, highly unlikely with everyone in Madrid, then they are still prepared to go to CAS.
Maxi Mazzarro, a member of the Boca barra brava, was deported back to Argentina on his arrival in Spain.
Somehow can't see these being big sellers with Argentine fans at the match:
so this game is being played in another continent wtf hope river win now total farce
Tevez unconcerned by any repercussions calling Conmebol "three crazy people behind a desk". It echoes the sentiments of Daniel Osvaldo in 2015 who claimed his dream was "stolen by five fat suits behind a desk".
Tevez also commented that the game should have been played at Monumental, this was also reiterated by
Benedetto in an interview.
Absolute tourist pish.
Benedetto was asked about Di Zeo: "He's welcome because he is a historic leader of the barra."
Contradits Tevez who says Spain should, "Show a strong hand to the barra brava."
Although it is changed days for Tevez as two years ago he went for drinks with them:
Di Zeo has decided not to travel, according to his lawyer. He made the mistake of appearing at the Boca send-off and brought attention to himself.
Tevez has never commented on that picture. There's some question over its validity, although I'd imagine there would some cross-over somewhere between the group/player due to where he comes from:
Today's comments might also be with one eye on his potential presidential bid.
CONMEBOL have dismissed Boca's claim. Looks like this will be going to CAS.
I thought a split Rangers/St Pat's scarf would be the ultimate depth to plumb, but this runs it a very close second. A curiosity for the Madrid locals and the inevitable Japanese front row camera voyeurs.
I’m guessing James Forest won’t have one?
Final of the Libertadores in 1980 between Nacional and Internacional (1-0):
Are the flights segregated? Feck being 30,000 feet up in the air with fans of both clubs on the plane!!
They arranged separate flights for supporters. I'm sure, though, there will be a mix in the standard flights.
There were separate flights although fans of both clubs who weren't flying direct to Madrid would be on the same flight.
Apparently, a number of tickets (3000 approx) have been returned by River and Boca due their inability to sell them. I don't know how true this is, but I could understand this happening as the cost for your average Argentine fan is astronomical - the Argentine economy is really struggling
Only some c.unt with no knowledge of football would produce these. Arseholes.
Live near Old Trafford and last night noticed a whole stall of Man Utd-Arsenal h&h scarves. Dreadful .
To be fair, I'd say it is the people who buy them that have no knowledge of football. I doubt the vendors would get them if they didn't sell.
And by winning last night's Copa Argentina (video in the Argieball thread) Rosario qualify for next year's Libertadores:
Right. If you can bring yourself to watch any more football after that then this is on at seven thirty. Same channels as previous. Boca failed to get River thrown out so game on.
It will definitely go ahead then?
Wouldn’t put it past more squealing and legal posturing from Boca as kick off nears to try and get the game awarded to them by default again
Hope there’s not a sense of anti-climax to it - and River prevail after the nonsense of the last few weeks
Third time lucky for this tonight?
Slightly unfair, my lad has a half and half scarf from every single European game Rangers have played since 1992.
You can take it as read he doesn't have a Rangers/Humphies scarf though!
Hopefully matches the 1st leg in entertainment value!
5 red cards and a riot out of the window now?
Here we go...really looking forward to this one!
Come on River !!!! Do these f.uckers !!!!
Mone River, need yez for 50 squid
Interestingly Boca have moaned the whole time about fairness.
Had the second leg been played when it should have been then Pavon was injured but due to the delay he is fit so they play him.
Not exactly very sporting from them.
Diving south Americans
Kevin Gallacher's accent is painful to listen to.
How's that not a yellow
which one is the proddies?
Is the ref from Scotland?
Plenty of fan mixing outside of the main assigned sections .
Suppose it's fair to say a lot won't be your average River or Boca fan, probably a lot of Spanish who have bought a top for the final too.
River are more Rangers, Boca more tarrieresque.
Only in your odd world. Come on, Boca!
Sadly it has been sanatised like f.uck by moving to another continent. Farcical. Another reason why I hope River spank these c.unts.
Always had a soft spot for River
Always use their kit on FIFA too
It's lost a lot of credibility for that reason and a dozen others.
Still, better than any other game on a Sunday night.
Who is the co commentator on BT. it sounds a bit like Alex Rae.
Agreed, first leg was good in Boca's ground with the strange looking stadium. Was looking forward to seeing the River fans fill their ground.
What a load of bollocks!
I stuck a muff diver on River to win 3-0.
im watching on free sports channel 252 if you have freesat
Mone the River proddies.
Boca started better for me so far, wee bit more composed otherwise not much happening action wise
