More than 50,000 Boca Juniors fans filled the La Bombonera stadium on Thursday afternoon to support their team in a prelude to the Copa Libertadores defeat against Ray Lee.
Without the opportunity to attend Monumental on Saturday, Boca's hot fans gathered at the stadium this afternoon to attend an open practice that lasted only 37 minutes and called it "Bombonerazo".
With the ability to scream, sing, and promote their idols, xeneizes fans have made long lines and gathered near Bombonera early and forced directors to open entry stations an hour before it was scheduled
With 400 soldiers controlling access and only 90 private security guards in the interior, an hour before the stadium's planned capacity was filled and there were some incidents.
At that time, the chief managers of Boca Juniors, led by their secretary, Cristiano Gribaudo, said the enthusiasm of the fans had overwhelmed control and declared that they could not get more people.
"La Bombonera is already full to encourage our players, our apologies to all who will not be able to enter, but we are so many millions … Thank you, thank you! #EstoEsBoca," the club writes in her Twitter account.
At that time there were some incidents of access to the large number of people left without the chance to enter the stadium to support the players before the decisive game next Saturday.
Upon entering the grass, the team received a great deal of oath, and the chief referents were welcomed while doing some light ball exercises.
The moment of greatest tension was when a supporter jumped out of the stands and when the police were about to remove it, he was backed by Carlos Tevez who took him to his colleagues and gave him his jacket.
After a mini-party in small spaces in a relaxed atmosphere, the players congratulated the fans in every corner of the stadium and received the love of the audience who asked them about a historic triumph Saturday at Monumental.
Boca Juniors, who knocked home 2-2 in the first match, will identify River Plate as a visitor to this 58th Copa Libertadores edition and the last passport to be offered for the World Cup of the club.
After the open practice, the team stayed in the training complex adjoining dinner, and then moved to the Madero Hotel where it would be focused on the transcendental and historical crossing of its classical rival.
