Peru ask FIFA to move Argentina qualifier from Boca Juniors stadium

Peru officials do not believe La Bombonera will provide a safe venue.

LIMA, Peru -- Peruvian football officials have asked FIFA to shift the World Cup qualifier against Argentina next month from Boca Juniors' Bombonera stadium in Buenos Aires.

In a letter to FIFA general secretary Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura, the Peruvian Football Association says it "will be difficult to ensure" the safety of "the Peruvian association as well as the thousands of fans who will travel from Peru for the historic match."

A match in 2015 between Boca Juniors and archrival River Plate was suspended when River players were sprayed by fans with an irritant similar to tear gas.

Peru and Argentina meet on Oct. 5. With two games remaining, they are tied on qualifying points and are trying to land one of CONMEBOL's four automatic berths from to play in next year's finals in Russia.
