  1. I got my tickets via viagogo and the guy will email you about what hotel to meet at beforehand. The hotel was in the city centre. Before River v Boca we met outside a coffee shop. There's plenty others doing the same so there's no problems. Take your passport. There are plenty police searches etc before the stadiums...especially la Bombonera. It saves quite a lot of time.
  2. Tickets were easy to buy. Got tickets for Boca v Racing and got picked up and taken back in a mini bus. The guy was very helpful. You are left on your own though once you are in the stadium. All we were told is don't go into "12" which is where the ultras are. It was an unbelievable experience. The following week I got tickets for River v Boca. It was from the same guy but had to make my own way to and from El Monumental. If your hotel is in the city centre either organise a taxi or prepare for a long walk. Bonbonera pisses all over El Monumental. Btw Buenos Aires is absolutely huge.
  3. Rather that happened today rather than the Partick game.
  4. Just thinking about this. He booted Scott Brown in the nuts. That'll give him a wee bonus so it evens itself out into no further action.
  5. Why doesnt some thug just maim him? Someone like that guy at Hamilton? McKinnon.
  6. Called off indefinitely. It should have been a 1 off game at a neutral ground.
  7. There wasn't any away fans 2 years ago when I was there. For Boca v Racing there was 4 check points before I got in. Both police and army. Only 1 check point for River v Boca though. It was a much easier entry into the ground.
  8. 2nd leg live on BT2 on Saturday night at 7:45. At El Monumental. Saw Boca beat River there 2 years ago.
  9. Great game to watch. Saw this at el Monumental in 2016. Saw Boca v Racing at la Bombonera the week before. There were no away fans at either game then too. Didn't matter. The atmosphere at both was something else. I've never seen anything like it.
  10. The statue of Angel Lebruna outside el Monumental in Buenos Aires is a cracker.
  11. Could have been worse. Most are abysmal. He's not as bad as abysmal....
  12. Just remembered there was 4 searches before we got into la Bombonera too. Police and army and that was with no away fans. Quite strict there. There was only 1 for River v Boca and it was quite timid compared to the brutal searches at Boca. All worth it though.
  13. I sorted it all through my hotel when i went cost about 50 usd all in for me.That was for game at the chocolate box.Behind the goals is really scary though they dont take kindly to outsiders as they all stand in the same spot at every home game.I ended up being shuffled to the side and back I was behind the goals and never felt uneasy at all. I went with my girlfriend too. We were told not to go into section 12 though as it can be dangerous there.
