Kogarah or Leichhardt? Let the punters decide.

SCG

I’m sure 80,000 fairweather River and Boca fans can be conned into going to ANZ.


#24

That would be some scene.


#25

So. That’s great.


#26

Lol. I mean, one of them IS going to be playing in the Club World Championship a few days later, but still…


#27

What a comprehensive allround clusterf


#28

saw a post on FB it’s at the Bernabau?


#29

Yeah came to post the same


#30

i usually come first

boom tish

So after initially opposing a second leg being played and wanting to title awarded to them, Boca seem fine with playing in Madrid. But now River dont want to play unless its in Buenos Aires


#32

1-1 after 80. Boca player goes dow in the box and it’s called indirect free kick?


#33

Couldn’t figure that one out either. It wasn’t a foul in the first place, but I thought a foul in the box is automatic penalty?

Also they’ve suspended away goals for the two ties.


#34

Boca player sent off.


#35

did you think he deserved it? Both players went into it 50/50 Thought the River slide was just as bad


#36

Yeah I thought that too. One of those things which a yellow could be argued but a yellow to send off is harsh


#37

Not necessarily. A high foot not making contact with the opposition player (dangerous play) is an indirect free kick.
There are also other instances where a foul committed by the defending team inside the penalty area results in an indirect free kick (most commonly GK handling a back pass)

*I haven’t seen the incident you’re referring to.
