I wish it's a party

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

I write these lines knowing the result of River but not Boca's. Anyway, I play the game (I hope not to move to friends xeneizes): 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 would love to see that final, I would love the two finalists to be Argentine. But I can't help but ask myself a question: how are we going to organize it?Just today they will face, for the quarterfinals of the Copa Argentina, Newell's and Central. First, a parenthesis: I understand that the spirit of the cup makes the locations alternate and that the venues go through the entire national territory, as a way of fostering spectacle. But just in this case, wouldn't it have been good if it was played in Rosario? The answer is clear: NO. And why not? Because they want to avoid a problem. What problem? Security. In fact, we are going to play on the Arsenal court with closed doors.Now, we return to the beginning: we are not able to ensure that in an important but not classic of the size of River-Boca there is no riot, then we no longer prohibit the swollen visitor: we ban both (I imagine that this decision must have also influenced the fact that the two partialities should travel along the same route and at the same time, and there we return to the beginning: why is horn not played in Rosario?). He said that we cannot ensure security in that match, important undoubtedly, 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 panic that fans from Boca go, at night, one day of the week, to Núñez? More and more often I feel like we're not up to it. I wish I'm wrong, both partialities are allowed and it's a party. Hopefully.
