Boca Juniors have requested the postponement of the Copa Libertadores final following Saturday’s attack on their team coach.

The second leg of the match, finely poised at 2-2, was delayed twice before being put back 24 hours after River Plate fans smashed bus windows on the team’s approach to El Monumental stadium.

Players were injured by flying shards of glass and affected by tear gas, fired by police to disperse the crowd, resulting in the postponement.
