Cerro Porteño – Boca Juniors Copa Libertadores 28042016
The celebration of the iconic Argentine club's first goal of 2017 nearly turned tragic.

Scary scenes marred Boca Juniors' first match of 2017 on Saturday, with at least eight people injured in a fan stampede.

Boca faced Banfield at the Estadio Florencio Sola three days after Argentine players ended the strike that had delayed the start of the 2017 campaign for more than a month.

Dario Benedetto bagged a brace to lead Boca to a 2-0 win, but his 16th-minute strike nearly led to tragedy as supporters vigorously rushed to the lower levels of the Boca tribune.

Goal's Ignacio Cruz was in attendance to document the incident:


Al menos ocho hinchas de BOCA resultaron heridos tras una avalancha luego del primer gol.
