River Plate Fan Gets QR Code Tattoo That Shows Copa Libertadores Final Goals When Scanned

River Plate Fan Gets QR Code Tattoo That Shows Copa Libertadores Final Goals When Scanned

Argentinian football fans have a reputation for being all kinds of crazy and this River Plate supporter is living up to it with his antics.

One chap hates rivals Boca Juniors so much that he has got a tattoo of a QR code and when you scan it with your iPhone, it immediately directs you to highlights from the Copa Libertadores final victory River achieved in the ultimate SuperClasico last year.

River won 5-3 over two legs, with Juan Quintero's stunning extra-time strike breaking the deadlock in the second fixture, played at the Santiago Bernabeu in December.

And thanks to this incredible tattoo, he can relive that worldie and the icing-on-the-cake goal from Gonzales Nicolas Martinez in the dying embers in a matter of seconds.

Not many rivalries compare to Boca Juniors and River Plate, with the Buenos Aires derby so intense that the last game featured all sorts of violent scenes.

Ahead of their first ever Copa Libertadores final encounter, a house genuinely got burned down after one fan from each team over in Misiones had a bit of beef and it ended in one blazing the other's home because obviously that's the only logical end result.

Arguments between opposition football fans are are a regular occurrence but few end up with the fire brigade being called.
