The Uruguayan prosecutor’s office will investigate the violence that led to the suspension of the top-flight match between Boston River and Penarol three minutes before stoppage time after fans bombarded players with stones.
Boston goalie Santiago Silva described the situation as horrific and said he had never experienced anything like it in the game. Penarol fans threw items on the field after Boston went 2-1 up and won a penalty in the 76th minute.
Speaking to Uruguay’s Radio Sport 890, Silva said: ” I felt insulted, something was thrown, but not as big as the stones I saw connecting the pitch, it was very dangerous.

The same encounter
In the first half, Penarol goalkeeper Kevin Dawson was also attacked by his own fans, who threw a wine bottle at him.
The Uruguayan Football Federation’s disciplinary committee will decide what to do, with the Boston River away from a victory that would guarantee them a place in the Copa Libertadores.
