Three people were judicially notified when they were each found with the same piece of different animals. One of them had already been detained for the violation in other games. In addition, there were 11 arrested for attempted robbery and entry without tickets.


This Sunday, the City Police seized

three pig heads from

River

fans

who tried to bring them into the Monumental stadium, prior to the Superclásico in which the local team and Boca tied 1 to 1 for the seventh date of the League Cup.

The limit between soccer folklore, in Argentina, and the passage to

discriminatory or lacerating acts

is blurry.

Rivalry can lead to acts of violence, although they may even seem like colorful and friendly situations.

Whether they are nicknames, memories of matches or milestones that have tattooed the history of both clubs with fire.

The Xeneizes fans are remembered showing chickens in the stands during a superclassic during the '90s in the Bombonera or the inflatable chancho in 2011, when they officially faced each other again after the million-dollar relegation a year before.

Flags, balloons, t-shirts, street posters and countless resources are part of what, in this case, River and Boca fans have been dancing together for more than a century.

This Sunday, in Núñez, there were

three fans who will have to answer to justice

for trying to bring a mutilated animal to the most important match in vernacular soccer.

One of them was identified on Avenida del Libertador and Udaondo, at 3:20 p.m. after city police observed him at one of the entrances to the stadium

moving the part of the animal

.

According to the Buenos Aires security forces, this is a

21-year-old

young man who

had already been identified in other matches

with the same object in the stands.

The Central Office for Receiving Complaints led by Doctor Mola intervened, ordering the kidnapping of the animal's head and notifying the 21-year-old man for

inciting opposing bias

.

Subsequently,

two other fans were found in the same circumstances

having in their possession two heads of the same animal species, who were also notified by the intervening magistrate.

Eleven arrested before the Superclásico at the Monumental

The City Police arrested

eleven people

this Sunday in the run-up to the Superclásico for

robbery and attempted entry without tickets

beaten by fans who discovered them red-handed

.

On the other hand, there were eight more detainees for trying to access the Más Monumental stadium without a ticket.

Meanwhile, a man was also arrested in Quinteros and Bavio for hitting a police officer who wanted to identify him while he was urinating in public.

As a result of the different interventions,

two police officers were injured

, without risk of life.
