Boca Juniors fans were arrested for imitating a monkey and making a Nazi gesture during the game against Corinthians, this Tuesday, at Neo Química Arena, for the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores. The one who imitated a monkey is Argentine and lives in Brazil. The other is still under investigation.

Four more fans were taken to the Jecrim (Special Criminal Court) inside the Arena to be identified for racist gestures.

This is not the first time that Boca fans have been arrested in São Paulo for racist acts. In the game against Corinthians for the first phase of the Libertadores, an Argentine had to post bail to leave the police station after imitating a monkey in the stands of the Arena.
