The referee reported the following: “(…) an invasion of the field of play by the fans of Deportivo Cali located in the eastern grandstand. Said subjects attacked the players and coaching staff of Deportivo Cali, the National Police and assistant referee #1, the latter being kicked by an invader. We were able to verify the aggression against the players Teófilo Gutiérrez, Ángelo Rodríguez and the Technical Director Mayer Candelo with words and fists. None of the attacked players, DT and referee responded to said acts. The incidents lasted around 33 minutes where the attacks on the public force were with blunt objects: umbrellas, fences, tubes, sticks and sharp objects where several police officers were injured.
