Sports Chaos as Argentine Football Friendly Game Sees 5 Red Cards



Argentina's Superclasico on Sunday ended in chaos as five players saw red in an off-season 'friendly' match between River Plate and Boca Juniors.

Pisculichi scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in the 17th minute after Tevez had handballed.

Boca were down to eight men by the 78th minute, before River's Jonathan Maidana, for headbutting Carlos Tevez, and Leonardo Pisculichi saw red.

"Neither of us behaved well," Tevez said referring to himself and Maidana.

Boca's reds:
  • Jonathan Silva, 10 minutes into his debut, for a lunge on Gabriel Mercado
  • Gino Peruzzi for a foul
  • Daniel Diaz for insulting referee Patricio Loustau
River's reds:
  • Maidana dismissed for headbutting Tevez
  • Pisculichi for getting involved in the resulting melee
