This upcoming Sunday, Madrid are going to enjoy a show universal, of a football match for the story. Although we would have liked a lot to the final of the Copa Libertadores between River Plate and Boca Juniors have been held in Buenos Aires, where they should have been held in normal conditions. But the result in Madrid, we are proud that Madrid is a city of peace. I want to welcome all the fans and encourage them to enjoy in the framework of the best values of sport, which have to do with the brotherhood, the fun and the meeting.
I Encourage the people of madrid and the argentine to enjoy our streets, our culture and our gastronomy. Madrid has always had an argentine accent that has flown over the best of our sky. In the world of the arts, including football, we have always felt your influence and we can not think ourselves either without your input. Our ties were always a round trip.
Madrid is glad to receive this football game because it is a city of welcome and embrace. You come here when the weather is cold, but I am sure that you will feel the warmth of our neighbors. I hope it is a shared feast, where the colors are mixed and the distances are shortened by a few days.
now a month we celebrate the second Global Forum on Violence and Urban Education for Coexistence and Peace in the cultural center Matadero. In this scenario we talk about sport and violence in sport, which is something that this town Council is very concerned about. We aim that what is important is the education and respect, as well as the necessary exemplarity of the athletes that reach the highest.
Madrid embraces and expects exemplary behavior from all, so that this match becomes a symbol to the world that the passion of the sport is an emotion shared, within the respect and tolerance. Only one of the two teams can win. I wish you two the best of luck on the pitch. I am convinced that there will not be the slightest act of violence, on the contrary, I hope it's a good time to demonstrate that the know how to be is better recognised as people and fans honest about football clubs legendary. We hope that you win the sport, that the party is an embrace of peace respectful and direction between Madrid and Buenos Aires.
Manuela Carmena is the mayor of Madrid.
