Boca Juniors Players Fight Tigre Fans After Argentine League Loss (Video)

Legendary Argentine club Boca Juniors lost a league match 2-1 to Tigre on Sunday. And then all hell broke loose.

Tigre benefited from a late Boca own goal, and afterwards, Boca's players took out their frustration the way all professionals do in these kinds of situations.

They got into a fight with Tigre's fans, of course.

The incident was caught on camera, and the video of it appears above. Trust me, it got pretty feisty for a few moments.

Apparently, the whole thing started when Boca's bus was parked in the same area as Tigre's fans. Big mistake.

Fresh off a disheartening loss, Boca's players got into a war of words with the fans. Then, predictably, violence erupted.

From 101 Great Goals:

Boca striker Santiago “the Tank” Silva, Rolando Schiavi and Franco Sosa all confronted Tigre fans and the police were forced to fire rubber bullets in the air to disperse the crowd.

The press in Argentina have blamed Boca coach Julio César Falcioni for his inflammatory post-match comments, where he blamed the referee for both of Tigre’s goals.

Unfortunately for Boca Juniors, they didn't win this fight either. But they did look muy macho wearing their matching, preppy frat boy-esque clothes.

Despite the loss, Boca still lead the Argentine Clausura on goal difference ahead of Newell's Old Boys. And even if this season falls apart now, they did win the Apertura by a whopping 12 points last season.

So what's next for Boca and their manager? I say they get Ralph Lauren on the phone pronto for a new line of activewear.
