Madrid / A large number of fans of the River Plate went to Puerta del Sol in Madrid to celebrate the title of the Copa Libertadores conquered by their club after wining Boca Juniors 3-1 at Santiago Bernabéu stadium.
After the triumph in an exciting duel, marked by the traditional rivalry between the two sets, some of those who witnessed him live went to the meeting place established to celebrate in case there were reasons for it.
It’s for this reason that from the exit of Callao subway people were coming out wearing red and white clothes and joining a party where they mixed with others who had not been able to get entry and with curious of different nationalities who sought to be part of that moment of collective joy.
To the rhythm of the drums, the throats were unleashed to sing various chants of support to the entity ‘millionaire’ as well as criticism on the contrary, all in a calm manner and with the police attentive but without having to intervene.
Among the group was, for example,Ariel Díaz, who although satisfied regretted not having been able to raise the trophy at the Monumental: “It was not good, I would have liked to win it as a local on the River Plate court as we deserved it. But it has been beautiful to know the Bernabéu, to win Copa Libertadores against Boca Juniors here. Madrid is beautiful and Spain is a beautiful country but the ideal would have been to play the game in Argentina.”
Andrew and Juan Francisco Cantelmi, father and son, were also happy. This was explained by the first: “It is the greatest sporting joy of my life. I already lived other Copa Libertadores, all in Argentina, but never against Boca Juniors and with all the particular conditions that this has.”
In the same line expressed his father: “I am seventy-four years old, my passion is the River Plate. I’ve been to all sporting events where there were great triumphs and nothing, absolutely nothing, is comparable to this.”
AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE
Andrés highlighted the great effort made: “That he has been outside of Argentina gives him a special epic. We travelled more than eleven thousand kilometres, we had to leave our family and do a lot of things to be able to come and see him. It’s an experience between father and son which will never be forgotten, this is indelible. “
“We have come to Madrid many times as a tourist but this is something else. This time we came to something specific. We came to great frustration or great joy. And the second one occurred”, Juan Francisco tells EFE.
The decision to move the meeting to another city came after the violent acts that preceded the clash that was planned in the Monumental: “In Argentina, we are a lot and the day of the incidents on the court there were sixty-six thousand people, all people normal except for a very small handful that will not encourage River Plate but will do something else. We are the normal fan, who celebrate, celebrate and nothing else.”
Both will return to their homeland like many others who have completed a long journey to enjoy one of the most important clashes in the history of the club. Nobody knows what the future will bring to his team but, whatever happens, Madrid will remain forever in his memory. (December 10, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
