Tension at the end of Melgar vs Metropolitanos. Bernardo Cuesta and Edgar Villamarin were part of a tumult that was generated in the stands of the Monumental stadium after finishing the match between Peruvians and Venezuelans for the last day of the group stage of the Copa Sudamericana.

The altercation began after strong complaints from the visitors to the main referee of the contest, who was indicated as the main responsible for not charging them a penalty that could give them victory against the rojinegros, obtaining a response from those of the Arequipa team, who did not share your claims.

After that, two representatives of Metropolitans faced the striker and the sports manager of Melgar, resulting in a confrontation between both parties that ended with an exchange of blows between the idol, the painting ‘Domino’ with an accredited representative of the llanero team, the latter being the one who started the incident.

It should be noted that the Argentine attacker tried to separate the people, in the first instance, but received a blow that made him fall into the stands of the Monumental. After the attacks he received, he came out in personal defense, to be later separated by the security members who gathered at the colossus of Ate for the duel for the Copa Sudamericana.

The result between Melgar and Metropolitans (0-0), which left the ‘Domino’ without options to access the second round, remained in the background, since all the eyes of the protagonists and those attending the Lima sports scene were turned to this fact.

And it is that the rojinegros needed to beat the Venezuelans and a negative result from Athletico Paranaense, but this did not happen, since the Brazilians thrashed Aucas and the Peruvians did not do their thing against a plains team that did their job well on the field .
