Burn Paraguay And not just because of the high temperature expected in Asunción, the capital of the country. Here's the first meeting between Daniel Angelici and Rodolfo D 'Onofrio "face to face" after the Survey scandal and delays the meeting between Afon and Boca at the Monumental stadium. And the planets will conflict. Expected very spicy meeting, where the president of the Conmebol, Alejandro Domínguez and one of the AFA, Claudio "Chiqui" Tapia will also be involved.

The feeling that burns in the environment is that the game will be reorganized and a new date will be installed (almost certainly on December 8). Here is the voice that runs in the lobby at the Bourbon Hotel, which was populated by men in suits during the last hours. Had the Review left – for a while to play on court a Now it is measured in desks.

Onofrio's Daughter arrived yesterday, escorted by the secretary of the river, Ignacio Villarroel, and the club's legal representative, lawyer Gonzalo Mayo. Tapia arrived this morning and a little later Daniel Angelici came down, along with Christian Gribaudo (Boca secretary) and lawyer Javier Medín, a former member of the Normarian Commission and the close person of the president of the Mauricio Macri. "I've come to listen, we have already made the presentation," said the owner of the Boca as he left the hotel for the meeting. Onofrio did not make statements. Angelici crossed to Conmebol headquarters in a place; the president of the Afon left walking.
The meeting will take place in the main hall of the Presidency of the Conmebol, opposite the Bourbon Hotel, in Luque. The place is practically "arfog" from the first hours of this Tuesday and only access to the Argentine club presidents (with their peers) and the AFA holder

"Boca is very armed", I've heard in the corridors. They refer to what he has strong tests on the attack of rivers River to the xeneize micro campus on Saturday at the Monumental. And he wants the points. Will it reach you to make a decision that's apparently taken?
Yesterday, the president of the Conmebol announced a statement that he said: "Football will not be won with stone or abusive, it's won by players on the court, and more in South America with the quality of our players." Some took it as a way of put pressure. However, it is assumed that the Disciplinary Unit is independent of the South American entity. It's similar …
Then? From the disciplinary court, they opened a summary to the River (which had already released) after the introduction of Boca. The xeneize club requires an Article 18 application to punish its competitor with the loss of the game. And, as a result, they won the Libertadores Cup without playing the final relocation work. They claim that the situation matches the one of 2015 with the memorable game of pepper gas, when the club was disqualified and Afon (who won the series from a round of 16 1 -0, with 45 minutes left) higher than the last quarter. last.
However, sources close to the Conmebol say that it would appeal to technical details to refuse that application and that the game can be resolved on court. That question is what would make both events different. At the security technical meeting, one day before the game, the security boundary had to erase, and from the South American entity considered that the event had occurred outside those limits, A fact that also appears in the "men's agreement" that the Saturday signed the presidents.
When will the failure go? There are two versions. One thing that you can leave in particular this afternoon, after the meeting. And another who stressed that it would only be broadcast on Thursday. Anyway, Dominguez's intention is to set a date so that the game is played. Then it will be necessary to define whether it is in the Monumental to the public or if it is a penalty to the River and the assembly moves to another step (Chaco's Defender, in Asunción?) and he'll do it "behind closed doors."
By statement, which then I've been deleted, Communications Conmebol this morning the following: "Luque, Paraguay – November 27, 2018. The Confederation of South America Football says that Mr Alejandro Domínguez, president of the Conmebol, will meet the 11th Mr Daniel Angelici, President of the Athletic Club Boca Juniors, and Rodolfo Donofrio, President of the River Plate Atlético Club, as scheduled last Sunday, November 25. "
The statement continues: "The aim of the meeting is to define The date and location where the game will be played in the final return of the 2018 Libertadores, originally scheduled for November 24, 2018 a has extended through mutual agreement by the three parties"
And it comes to the conclusion: "It should be noted that the decisions made at today's meeting of the nature of sport and, in any case, They are independent and subject to binding decisions taken by the Disciplinary Tribunal of Conmebol, an independent organ and the administration, in the legal order processes that are of course ".
"The meeting will not be easy", said someone close to the president of the Conmebol. Logical for all this. And also because Angelici and Onofrio will meet again after the crossing allegations treason He left the Cold War after being very war between the presidents of the two most important clubs in Argentina.
