CONMEBOL ruling: Boca Juniors out of 2015 Copa Libertadores

CONMEBOL ruling

They took their sweet time announcing it, but CONMEBOL finally tweeted the above photograph on Saturday night, confirming that Boca Juniors have been disqualified from this year’s Copa Libertadores after the acid spray attack on River Plate’s team prior to the second half of Thursday night’s last sixteen second leg. As well as the expulsion (which Boca can’t appeal), they will have to play their next four continental home games behind closed doors, and won’t be allowed to take away fans to their next four continental away games; a US$200,000 fine has also been levied. These latter three points will all be appealed by the club, who have also voiced their disagreement with the decision to expel them from the competition. There will be an article by me on ESPNFC shortly.
