I hope it's a party.

For the first time in history, River and Boca will define a Copa Libertadores...

I write these lines knowing the result of River but not the one of Boca. Anyway, I play the game (I hope not to mufar to xeneizes friends): I think Boca reaches the final of the Libertadores. A historical fact: for the first time in the history of the Cup there would be a final between River and Boca. So far, happiness: I'd love to see that final, I'd love the two finalists to be Argentines. But I can't help but ask myself one question: how are we going to organise it? Just today they are going to face each other in the quarter-finals of the Copa Argentina, Newell´s and Central. First of all, a parenthesis: I understand that the spirit of the cup makes the venues alternate and the venues pass through the entire national territory, as a way of promoting the show. But just in this case, wouldn't it have been good to play in Rosario? The answer is clear: NO. And why not? Because they want to avoid a problem. What problem? Security. In fact, they're going to play on the Arsenal pitch behind closed doors. Now, we go back to the beginning: we are not able to assure that in an important classic but not of the size of River-Boca there will be no disturbances, so we no longer forbid the visiting fans: we forbid both (I imagine that in this decision must have influenced, moreover, the fact that the two partials should travel by the same route and at the same time, and there we go back to the beginning: why don't you play in Rosario?). I was saying that we can't ensure safety in that match, which is undoubtedly important, but much less important than a Libertadores final. How are we going to do with Boca-River? How do we explain to Conmebol that we're panicking that the fans of Boca will go to Nuñez at night, one day of the week? More and more often I feel that we are not up to the task. I hope I'm wrong, both partitions are allowed and it's a party. I hope so.
