But at the moment when the players of Boca juniors was approaching the stadium, their bus was pelted with various objects fans "river Plate".

"After the acts of violence suffered in the vicinity of the stadium, Boca. requests the suspension of the game, as well as the application of the corresponding sanctions provided in Article 18", Boca said in a statement on their website.

Boca had previously requested the game be postponed, saying: "Club Atletico Boca Juniors made a formal presentation to Conmebol on Sunday to request that the final of the Copa Libertadores be played in conditions of equality".

CONMEBOL originally postponed the match until 6 p.m. local time Saturday before kickoff was pushed back again, to 7:15 p.m. Confederation president Dominguez then announced the game would take place on Sunday.

River Plate fans, who were behind the attack, are the only fans permitted to attend the game due to a rule prohibiting away fans from appearing at games between the two rivals.

The decisive leg had been set to be played on Saturday but was suspended until Sunday after Boca players were injured when their bus was attacked by River fans outside their Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires.

On Saturday, Boca said they were in no position to play the game due to the injured parties needing medical treatment at hospital.

The first leg, held at Boca's stadium La Bombonera, ended in a 2-2 draw.

At least 29 people were arrested on Saturday in the Argentine capital for violence ahead of the Copa Libertadores final, which led to the game being rescheduled.

"We want immediate action from the authorities and will help to identify, capture and prosecute those responsible".

Argentinian journalist Peter Coates suggests the game could take place in two weeks time. I will speak to both presidents.

The rivalry between River Plate and Boca Juniors is one of the biggest in football - with both sides originating from the La Boca neighbourhood before River relocated to a different district of Buenos Aires.

Maradona, a Boca legend who spent three years of his legendary career with the club and who captained his nation to World Cup glory in 1986, hit out at the country's president for the violence, claiming his politics were at fault for the ugly scenes.
