Argentina: San Lorenzo’s ultras would have thrown stones to Club Bolivar’s bus before Copa Libertadores Semi-final
Fair Play ruled in Argentina on the day before the 2014 Copa Libertadores Semi-final between San Lorenzo and Club Bolivar, because, according to Bolivian press (the website Futbolmania Bolivia is the only one to speak about this event, so we’ll use the conditional tense), few barras (South American ultras) of “El Santo” would have assaulted the bus that was carrying Club Bolivar’s players to Neo Gasometro (Estadio Pedro Bidegain) in Buenos Aires, because they should have trained, as usual in continental competition for away teams, on the pitch where the match would have been played the following day (tonight for our European Readers).
The bus would have been warmly greeted by a welcoming comitee of Argentian ultras, who would have thrown few stones to the vehicle and, according to the driver, would have broken a window: anyway nobody would have been hurt and the team regularly would have trained at the stadium, but Club Bolivar would have asked for more protection from the Police.
Few day ago there was a controversy about Leandro Romagnoli’s (San Lorenzo) eligibility, because the offensive midfielder was lifted a ban that he had received because of a controversial red card for which he was later been considered not guilty, and the Bolivian team complained about that.
We hope to find few pictures or videos about the fact.
