Boca stadium closed after fan trouble

25 August 2012 06:47

Boca Juniors have been handed a one-match stadium ban after an incident involving supporters during their clash with Independiente.

During the second half of Wednesday's Copa Sudamericana clash at La Bombonera, four fans situated directly above the Independiente bench were seen to lean over and shake an advertising board loose before dropping it onto the opposition substitutes and staff below.

Clarin reports that despite the club acting swiftly to identify the culprits, the sports committee have taken the decision to close La Bombonera's doors for one fixture, meaning Boca will have to find an alternative venue for their clash with Atletico Rafaela in a fortnight.

"La Bombonera (has been) suspended for one fixture," Boca Juniors confirmed on their website.

"This was decided by the sports committee following incidents on Wednesday."

Security secretary, Sergio Berni, has denied any suggestion that members of the Independiente team goaded fans into a reaction after the visitors were awarded a late penalty, however.

"I did not observe any illicit conduct from the Independiente team," he said.

The match ended in a 3-3 draw, with the second leg scheduled to take place on August 29.
