River Plate oppose playing Copa Libertadores final in Madrid

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde looks on before the UEFA Champions League group B match against PSV Eindhoven at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona

In an official statement released on Saturday morning, River Plate appealed against CONMEBOL's decision to move the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final to Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu on December 9.

Then the second leg on November 24 had to be postponed due to crowd trouble near the Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires that left fans and several players injured as River Plate fans attacked the Boca team bus.

The email states there is a limit to the number of the tickets, which, according to Real Madrid, was agreed with Copa Libertadores organiser Conmebol. Boca say they want the same standards to apply to River.

Several Boca Juniors players including Pablo Perez needed hospital treatment for injuries caused by shards of glass and others complained about the effects of inhaling teargas in the attack last Saturday.

The victor of South America's premier club competition is scheduled to begin the Club World Cup with a semi-final match on December 18.

"It was a sad moment for everyone".

But, Infantino insisted that Argentina "does not have to feel ashamed" over the final being moved to Madrid.

"For me, playing Boca-River outside of South America is the most shameful thing I have seen or will ever see as a football player, as a South American, and as someone that considers that this sport should be experienced with feeling, with passion and above all with respect", said the former Barcelona defender.

"I'm sad, CONMEBOL had the most hard job".

"This is an exceptional situation", added Infantino, who was at the stadium. "Football can't stop, the ball can't stop - we'll see how we make it happen".

This was after the Boca team bus was attacked and players injured as it approached River's Monumental Stadium.
