Highlights: Eight days have passed since a bottle full of water hit the head of striker Fernando Brandán and caused the suspension of the classic between Chacarita and Tigre. The AFA Disciplinary Court issued its first decision that is "logical", but seems somewhat out of time. Both clubs must take note of referee Ariel Penel's report and, within five business days, send their defense of what happened. Pending the final resolution, which should come out next Thursday, whoever advances to the next round already knows their rival, which is San Lorenzo.

Eight days have passed since a bottle full of water hit the head of striker

Fernando Brandán

and caused the suspension of the classic between

Chacarita

and

Tigre

, which won 1-0 in the match for the

Argentine Cup

at the Arsenal de Sarandí stadium.

Just this Thursday, the

AFA Disciplinary Court

issued its first decision that is "logical", but seems somewhat out of time.

Both clubs must take note of referee Ariel Penel's report and, within

five business days

, send their defense of what happened in the round of 32 match, which was suspended 7 minutes into the second half.

The decision of the Disciplinary Court on the match between Chacarita and Tigre for the Argentine Cup.

At that moment, a bottle hit Fernando Brandán

's head

, causing a concussion and a problem in his right eye.

The projectile was launched from the Tigre stalls (there were no Chacarita fans in the stadium, except for some leaders and close friends) and whoever threw it was arrested almost immediately and released hours later.

The name of partner number 58361 of the Victoria cast accused of the bottle crash was

Axel Iván Genes

.

"He had trauma to the ocular region and the right zygomatic arch. The physical examination showed a conjunctival injection, with edema in the area, pain, difficulty in mobility of the eyeball and a tendency to photopsias, which are flashes," he explained.

Ayelén Pucci

, the doctor of the Chacarita team, seconds after signing the report in referee Penel's locker room.

The footballer was later taken to the Santa Lucía ophthalmological hospital for a more thorough examination and left in a wheelchair and with his eye bandaged a few hours later.

A day later, the San Martín club sent a letter in which it asked the Court to "proceed to apply the current regulations, article 80 of the AFA Regulation of Transgressions and Penalties, and order

the loss of the match to Club Atlético Tigre,

without prejudice to other sanctions that it considers necessary."

This article to which Chacarita refers establishes a "fine of 2 to 6 dates, of the gross value of the general admission, depending on the seriousness of the fact, to the club whose members, partiality or partisan public located in the sectors assigned to said institution, in opportunity of higher division matches in a competition of any category, that throw any type of projectiles or other elements that are used as such and that attack by any means the referee, assistants, technical staff, players or the general public, provided that the fact can be attributed to an immediate consequence of the dispute (whether the match is played or not) or a previous match. In turn, if as a consequence of the indicated assumptions the start of the match or its continuation is prevented, it will apply to the match(es). responsible club/s a deduction of 9 to 30 points accredited as the relevant responsibilities, and a decision may be made to lose the category or even disaffiliate.

Finally, the Disciplinary Court may declare the responsible club team to have lost the match regardless of the time played and the number of goals scored.

The sanctions provided for in this article will apply to any event that occurs before, during or after the match, inside or outside the stadium."

"IT HAS TO BE PLAYED WHEREEVER AND HOWEVER"

At first, Chacarita's coach, Aníbal Biggeri, declared: "I play when they want and where they want. I don't have any problem. A game will be won or lost, but we are going to think about those of us who are inside. The only thing that interests me is "It's the boy's health."

However, the leadership decided to demand the maximum penalty from the Disciplinary Court of the Argentine Football Association for the injury suffered by the footballer.

Pending the final resolution, which should come out next Thursday, whoever advances to the next round already knows their rival, which is San Lorenzo, which beat Independiente de Chivilcoy 1-0 on the Quilmes field.
