The rivals II

It seems that every time we arrive in Argentina, the town's rival football clubs meet in the regional league finals. Two thousands people pack the local stadium but the atmosphere feels like a pro game. Raucous chants, insults and even street fights make sure fans are busy before the first whistle. Anti-riots forces suddenly charge two bands of fans that inadvertently meet outside the stadium. A gust of tear gas hits our tribune and leaves us all crying. The core of the supporters finally get to the stadium entrance and some try to force the fences to avoid to buy tickets. Policemen chase them armed and block the attempt.

Everybody is finally in, the battle is over and the game can start.
