At the same time, Boca’s goalkeeper Carlos Navarro Montoya was fighting in MMA style with a Chilean cameraman. A policeman with his dog approached both men in order to separate them. The dog had quite an effective idea to stop the fight. He approached Navarro Montoya and proceeded to bite him in his buttock, while also making a small tear in his pants. The legendary Uruguayan manager Óscar Washington Tabárez, who at the time was Boca’s coach, also had a confrontation of his own. His face came too close to a camera, which resulted in a cut to his cheek. Don’t forget to bet with the 1xBet line on other unforgettable matches.
