The start of the Argentine Professional League was marred after the death of a Boca Juniors fan in the La Bombonera stadium stalls during the match between the “Xeneizes” and Arsenal de Sarandí for the first date of the competition.

This was reported by the Argentine club through a statement in which it lamented the death of life member Jorge Núñez, 67, during the match. The fan was in stall L of the stadium and apparently had a history of heart problems.

“From the club we deeply regret the episode and accompany his family and friends in this sad moment”, commented the Buenos Aires squad, who planned to celebrate winning the League Cup title at the end of the match.

The match, which had its outcome, ended 2-1 in favor of Boca with goals from Agustín Sánchez and Sebastián Villa for Xeneize; Mauro Pittón discounted for the visit.
