15 of the best and worst images from Argentina's 'Superclásico'

Boca Juniors v River Plate was halted for 15 minutes due to crowd disturbances last night.

THE HIGHLIGHT OF Argentina’s domestic football calendar, the ‘Superclásico’ between Boca Juniors and River Plate was delayed for 15 minutes last night as fans hurled smoke bombs, flare and scaled the fence that surrounds the pitch.

Oh, and there were two goals too.

Manuel Lanzini’s early opener for the visitors was cancelled out by Santiago Silva and he sides shared a 1-1 draw that really suits neither with River Plate chasing Lanus at the summit and Boca trying to stay clear of the relegation zone.
