RIOT POLICE RUNNING STORY: Riot police were deployed in Buenos Aires in the early hours of Monday (December 10) morning after disturbances were reported during celebrations for River Plate's win over Boca Juniors in the Copa Libertadores final second leg.

Reuters video showed revellers throwing objects in the direction of police.

Officers responded with tear gas to disperse the crowd.

Soccer fans celebrated River Plate's 3-1 win against Boca Juniors in Madrid after violence had seen the original game postponed.

Soccer violence is commonplace in Argentina.

The Copa Libertadores final game was controversially moved 10,000 kilometres away from River's Monumental stadium to Madrid as Boca's team bus had been ambushed before the originally scheduled game, leaving several Boca players injured from the impact of the smashed windows and from tear gas that had been fired by police.
