Boca Juniors Fans Brutally Assault A River Plate Steward (Video)

boca juniors river plate riot

Disgusting scenes of violence at South American soccer matches are certainly nothing new, but on Sunday during Argentina’s latest edition of the SuperClasico, fans of the Boca Juniors took things to an all new low.

While the action on the pitch resulted in a hard-fought 2-2 draw between Boca and their heated rivals, River Plate, the action off the field resulted in 25 injuries.  Among those injured were several River Plate stewards, as footage of the melee in the stands clearly shows dozens of Boca Juniors fans brutally assaulting the men in the neon vests in a rather barbaric fashion.

Check it out:

Conflicting reports following the match stated that there were in fact fatalities resulting from the brutal riot (but there weren’t), and after watching the footage, it’s not hard to see why anyone would assume such.
