Another scandal at the Maracaná: Brazil – Argentina, postponed due to incidents in the stands

Minutes before the start of the South American classic, the police fiercely suppressed the Argentinian fans.

For the sixth day of the 2026 South American Qualifiers, Argentina visited the Maracaná to take on a dismal Brazil who are coming off two consecutive defeats.

Where do Argentina and Brazil stand in history?

In the run-up, the Brazilian police, as usual, once again suppressed the Argentine fans sitting in the stands. The police violence was so great that the Argentinian players tried to calm them down. With Leo Messi at the helm, they made the decision to go to the dressing room and postpone the start of the match until the guarantees were given.

It is important to emphasize that Argentine fans had already suffered the ravages of Brazilian severity a few weeks ago, in the Copa Libertadores final between Fluminense and Boca.
