On Sunday, CONMEBOL suspended the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final after Boca Juniors made an official request due to the injuries caused to several players from Saturday's attack on the team's bus.  

Boca Juniors released an official request to South America's governing body, asking for its suspension.

"After the acts of violence suffered near the stadium, having noted its magnitude and gravity," said the press release, "and its consequences generated within the squad, Boca Juniors believes the conditions (of playing a fair match) are not met and requests for the match to be suspended."

As a result, CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez agreed with the club and therefore suspended the match.

"At this point, the conditions are not right," said Dominguez. "We want both teams to enter the pitch with no excuses, and with no disadvantages."

There will now be a meeting with CONMEBOL officials and presidents from both clubs on Tuesday in Paraguay to determine the new date.

There are new obstacles, however, in order to schedule a new date as the G-20 summit takes place in Buenos Aires this week. In addition, the Club World Cup semifinal stage, a match set for the winner of the Copa Libertadores, is set for December 18, hosted by the United Arab Emirates.
