Another tragedy

Very sad day for football fans in Argentina (and i could say for our whole society) because as probably some of you already know, a San Lorenzo fan died apparently due to police brutality before the Velez - San Lorenzo game, outside the stadium.
This led to San Lorenzo fans to make riots when only 7 minuted had been played and the game was obviously suspended.
Three years ago it was a Velez fan that died before a San Lorenzo - Velez game, but in a fight between fans, and there were also fights again this time.

What's sad too is that this game was going to be played without away fans, but the clubs pushed for away fans to be allowed in the game and it ended in this tragedy.

We can only hope that this will be the last football related death in Argentina, but too many things would have to change and even the most optimistic know that this won't happen soon.

The game would be completed in neutral ground and behind closed doors in a future date to be determined.
