Argentina’s final World Cup Qualifier could be played at La Bombonera.
Following the team’s 1-1 draw against Venezuela, there were already talks about the team playing next month’s ultimate World Cup Qualifier at home in Boca’s La Bombonera. The team has played all across the country in the past few years but in Buenos Aires, it was always el Monumental. That could soon change.
According to reports, the AFA and president Claudio TAPIA will ask FIFA and CONMEBOL if the match against Peru could be played at La Bombonera. The formal request is expected to be made Wednesday night.
There have been talks and rumors as early as last year that the federation wanted to play at the mystical Bombonera but nothing was ever done about it.
