The Xeneizes travelled across Buenos Aires with the final all square at 2-2 after the opening game at La Bombonera, but their bus was showered with projectiles on the way to River's El Monumental stadium, with some smashing windows of the vehicle.

Boca Juniors requested the suspension of the Copa Libertadores final against River Plate, which is now set to be played later Sunday, and also that South American's soccer body CONMEMBOL sanctions their archrivals for the incident.

Boca captain Pablo Perez and teammate Gonzalo Lamardo suffered eye injuries as a result and TV channel TyC Sports said Perez's cornea was affected. The match was cancelled, there are calls to include "river Plate" technical defeat.

However, Boca argued on Sunday that more time was needed before the game could take place, citing the need to play in what they described as equal conditions.

CONMEBOL originally postponed the match until 6 p.m. local time Saturday before kickoff was pushed back again, to 7:15 p.m. Confederation president Dominguez then announced the game would take place on Sunday.
