Boca Juniors manager Miguel Ángel Russo was clattered by Barcelona SC’s Mario Pineida when the two sides met in the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday.
The boss of the Argentine club was sent flying when the opposition team player lost his footing while challenging for a ball going out of play with Nicolás Capaldo.

Pineida wound up inadvertently taking Russo out by the legs, upending him and sending him crashing to the turf by the dugout at the Estadio Monumental.
In the Group C match itself, a Carlos Garcés goal just after the half hour mark ensured a 1-0 win for the Ecuadorian side.
