Because the Professional Football League, headed by Marcelo Tinelli, rejected the request for River to dispute the League Cup at River Camp, the leadership of the Millonario issued a statement urging the AFA to be the one to resolve the conflict. Marcelo Gallardo’s team must receive Banfield this Sunday in the debut of the local competition.
The Board of Directors of the Professional Soccer League (Tinelli, Cristian Malaspina, Hernán Arboleya, Mario Leito, Sergio Rapisarda and Gabriel Pellegrino), notified their refusal to River’s request, listing 13 points that were shared by Javier Gil Navarro on his social networks.

Response from River did not wait and answered one by one the reasons for the LPF to close the statement as follows: By virtue of the grounds set forth here, we request that the Argentine Football Association be the one to resolve the dispute in question.
Let us remember that the president of AFA, Claudio Tapia, had given his endorsement during the week for the Millionaire to play at River Camp And now the club headed by Rodolfo D’Onofrio hopes that Chiqui will put an end to this dispute.
Another point in River’s favor is that Aprevide (Agency for the Prevention of Violence in Sports) had already approved the facilities in Ezeiza for the meeting between the institution of Núñez and Banfield to be played, and the police operation was already planned .
