Following a recent post about River Plate’s fans invading the pitch, this time, after the team’s loss in the second leg playoff to Belgrano, violence erupted among its fans. One devastated supporter cried, “Traitors! They kill your soul. It’s crazy. They kill your soul.”

Even River Plate’s players, as shown in the video, were escorted off the pitch under heavy security.
