Although Rafael Di Zeo and Mauro Martín have open legal cases, the Argentine Justice enabled them to travel to Al Ain, where Boca faced Racing for the International Super Cup. The leaders of the barra brava xeneize traveled 14 thousand kilometers and will be able to put together the party in the grandstand of the Hazza Bin Zayed stadium, an hour from Abu Dhabi.
There is no right of admission agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Argentina, which facilitated the entry of the bars to the stadium, unlike what happened in Qatar in the World Cup.
Di Zeo and Mauro Martín occupied one of the heads of the stadium along with about fifty bars. In the grandstand in front, the Racing bars also put together their use: although in smaller numbers, Los Pibes de Racing showed the rag of The Imperial Guard and celebrated the Cup they won at the end of the game with a controversial penalty.
It was the only faction of the Racing bar that traveled to the United Arab Emirates. The other group, known as those from Dock Sud, made up of former members of the Imperial Guard, seeks to seize the power of the stands, a situation that generates cross threats. When the Academy faced Racing de Montevideo, for example, the Previde that the friendly would be played behind closed doors for fear of a possible cross.
The visit of the bars to the stadium that rises in the middle of the desert did not end with riots. Although some members of the second and third line of the Boca bar tried to go out and look for any Racing fan who was around, Di Zeo will modify them.
The security of the match was in charge of the local forces and before the start of the final they had been warned that they were going to be inflexible with those who caused disturbances. This time La 12 assumed its status as a visitor, recognized its disadvantage and controlled itself.
Before the start of the game, the Boca bar displayed a banner with the legend: “Thank you JR. Player No. 12”. The rag, dedicated to Vice President Juan Román Riquelme, also showed three emblematic photos of the leader when he was a Boca player.
The most paradoxical thing was the arrival of the bar to the stadium. With Mauro Martín as the leader of the group, Di Zeo entered a few meters behind while he handed out autographs and posed for selfies, like one more star of the Boca world.
