DTotD: Stewards viciously attacked during predictable violence at River Plate-Boca match

Dirty Tackle

(Warning: Video contains abhorrent gang violence.)

Sunday's Superclasico between River Plate and Boca Juniors was rather violent, as per usual, but that didn't make it any less disturbing. There were 25 injuries, one heart attack and reports of two stewards being killed. Thankfully those reports proved to be false.

As the video above shows, stewards were targeted by fans and at least one was brutally beaten by a gang of Boca Juniors fans before one man told them to stop so he could be pulled away to safety. There were 1,000 police officers and another 1,200 private security forces and yet it still came to this.

The match ended in a 2-2 draw after Boca equalized in added time.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
