The second part of the Copa Libertadores final will be disputed on December 9 at 3:30 p.m. (Venezuelan time), at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium with both followers, confirmed Alejandro Domínguez, president of Conmebol.
"This is the king of sports, we know this and we know that he is only gaining or losing and not killing or dying, we are taking a step forward," said Domínguez, president of Conmebol, at a press conference.
The director thanked Pedro Sánchez, head of the Spanish government; Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA; Aleksander Ceferín, president of UEFA; and "his friend" Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid.
"We find in Spain the necessary neutrality that Conmebol was looking for, we believe that the connectivity that exists in the Madrid airport is important and that Argentines living in Spain can live this experience," he explained.
Domínguez said that with the transfer of the final to Madrid it is not intended to generate resources, but to create a fund to eradicate the violence of soccer in South America.
The final round between River Plate and Boca Juniors had to be played on Saturday, November 24. A violent attack by the radical fanatics on the bus that took the players to the Monumental Núñez stadium caused, in principle, the postponement of the game for Sunday.
Mouth refused to play the final and asked Conmebol to be champion, but the South American body rejected the request. During the negotiations to find a solution, Conmebol decided last Tuesday that the game would be thrown out of Argentina.
