The Spanish security forces are preparing to receive this weekend between 400 and 500 "especially violent" followers from River Plate and Boca Juniors, who travel to Madrid to see the return of the Copa Libertadores.
The figure has been advanced by José Manuel Rodríguez Uribes, delegate of the Spanish government in Madrid, on the day the police give details of the security device that is being put into operation in the Spanish capital for this extraordinary match, which is played Sunday at Santiago Bernabéu.
Uribes, who spoke on the SER Chain, says that the goal is for Spain to give an image of "security" in the world. The delegate has detailed that the National Police works "closely" with its Argentine counterparts and has launched a "maximum safety device" at the Adolfo Suárez – Madrid Barajas airport, on the roads, in the bus stations and to the subway.
One of these devices allowed intercepting and deporting Maxi Mazzaro, one of the leaders of the radical fan group of Boca Juniors, described by the police as "one of the most dangerous" brave bars. "
Meanwhile, the teams of River Plate and Boca Juniors are already in Madrid. In parallel, in Argentina, this week should begin the debate to tighten the pains to the radicals of football teams, but has been postponed for lack of consensus among the deputies.
