Deportivo Cali opens this Tuesday in the Copa Libertadores 2022 against Boca Juniors, in Palmaseca, at 7:30 pm local time.
And in the stands we will have to be attentive because, as confirmed by various media from Argentina, a part of the La 12 bar managed to enter Colombia after passing immigration controls and will be at the meeting.
Media such as TyC reported that Rafael Di Zeohead of the so-called barra brava xeneize, managed to enter by making a stopover through Panama City and entered the country with at least 10 other people.
The other leader of ‘La 12’ The one who tried to enter to be in the game on Tuesday was Mauro Martín, on a flight with seven other fans, but he was deported when the Panamanian authorities discovered that he was on their blacklist and did not have judicial permission. It is worth mentioning that Martín has opened a trial for covering up an alleged extortive kidnapping led by Maximiliano Mey Oetinger, one of the capos of La Doce, in events that occurred in 2016.
The last time the La 12 barristas tried to enter Colombia was in 2019, for a match against Deportes Tolima. At that time, they were all denied entry, since the Argentine authorities themselves warned that they had a history of violence and were prohibited from entering stadiums until 2024. This time Di Zeo obtained permission to leave the country and, using the strategy of entering through Panama, managed to reach Cali. Authorities must be very vigilant.
