For 15 minutes the events were not suppressed by police action and elements of the stadium were destroyed, in addition to registering attacks among the fans involved.

“What a silly thing that is happening in the stadium (aggressions in the stands). They call themselves fans (it doesn’t matter what team they are) and with their behavior they deprive everyone of the spectacle of football. They do not care that there are children or families. We cannot naturalize this. Not well”, the country’s president-elect, Gabriel Boric, posted on his social networks.

The commitment was resumed from 34 minutes and the football tone was the same as in its first moments: the crusaders had a hard time imposing their style of play and did not register shots on goal, while the whites dominated in possession and twice clearly reached the goal of Sebastián “Carrot” Pérez before the break.
