Even if a shameful Copa Libertadores 2018 has now found an at least largely free of violence at the end, should be in the final in Madrid, but please, no Foundation for the future. Many Argentines had to fly for a small fortune of ten thousand kilometers to Spain, to the biggest final in the history of their clubs to see.
