In Argentine football there is uncertainty, especially in Boca Juniors, after the trans-Andean justice opened an investigation into the excess of public in the stands of La Bombonera compared to Lanús, exceeding the capacity of 50% allowed by the Government of the neighboring country as a health measure as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

And it is not all, because the Public Prosecutor’s Office carried out a raid on Boca Juniors, which included the closure of the La Bombonera stadium with the argument of securing the evidence that helps in the investigation.

“The search had been requested by Celsa Ramírez, from the prosecutor’s office specializing in mass events, and the court granted it a while ago. The order entails a closure of five days, it is the same model that he used for Chicago ”, Olé was informed this afternoon.

And the fact was not without controversy, because the Monumental de River Plate stadium did not suffer the same fate despite the fact that the superclassic past between Millo and Boca was played almost at full capacity. It was evident to the eye that the Núñez enclosure far exceeded the 50% capacity allowed.

The same happened in the duel between Argentina and Uruguay for qualifying rounds at the Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti, while Alberto José Armando de Boca remains closed.

“In River and Vélez this formula was not used, but because they are other judges. It is a difference of criteria of the judges, the prosecution has the same criteria ”, the sources sentenced Olé.
