Argentina: Fans celebrate Defensa y Justicia's historic Copa Sudamericana title win

Argentina, Buenos Aires

Fans erupted with joy in Buenos Aires following Defensa y Justicia's historic title win in the final of the Copa Sudamericana on Saturday, after defeating Lanus 3-0.

"There are many fans that should have been here but because of this shitty disease, they couldn't be here. This title is for them for all the people of the world from Florencio Varela for the boss and the fans of the Halcon," explained a fan as he celebrated alongside dozens of fans, who were seen waving flags chanting and dancing.

Supporters were largely not wearing masks and were not maintaining social distancing, despite the ongoing pandemic.

The team commanded by former Chelsea and Argentina's star Hernan Crespo lifted its first trophy on a major tournament after a dominating performance against Greater Buenos Aires' team Lanus, which had no response for Crespo's team which led 1-0 just before halftime.

After taking over management of the team early in 2020, Hernan Crespo led Defensa y Justicia to compete at their first-ever Copa Libertadores and will be ascending to Argentina's top division after their victory over Lanus.
