Footage also emerged of the Boca bus approaching the stadium at high speed, trying to avoid the barrage from the River Plate fans.
Second, physical injury was suffered by at least two Boca players as a outcome of splinters of glass from the broken windows.
"The players are all hurt, you can't play this way", Christian Gribaudo, Boca's secretary general said in quotes reported by the Clarin website.
Videos emerging in the immediate aftermath outlined the destruction that had been brought upon the Boca bus, and the vulnerability of the players on-board as a result. Although this decision seems a little bit optimistic, perhaps.
The attack came despite the bus travelling with heavy police protection ahead of the second leg of the local derby between the two teams - dubbed the biggest club match in the history of Argentine football. His colleagues, even with time to recover from the effects of ingesting a toxic substance, could not possibly have been at their psychological peak for what is nearly certainly the biggest game they will ever play and the biggest game in the history of South American club football.
Boca players were injured by flying shards of glass and were also taken ill due to the effects of tear gas used by the police to disperse the crowds, according to reports.
Copa Libertadores final hit by pre-match violence
Fans had been inside the ground for up to eight hours when it was announced that the final would be postponed until Sunday (8pm GMT).
The two teams agreed to play Sunday evening instead of delaying the match start a few hours as originally planned, the president of the South American Football Confederation told reporters. A number of fans forced their way into the stadium, while there were sustained clashes between fans and police, who fired tear gas and rubber bullets.
Coates added: "Television reports that Boca players are vomiting in the changing room following their arrival - Tevez the worst affected".
It is the first time ever it has been contested by two Argentine sides. Argentina has a deep problem of fan violence - hence the ban on away supporters from this final - and, seemingly, a lack of political will to get to grips with it.
This local encounter is widely viewed as the fiercest rivalry in world football.
The game was taking place at River's Estadio Monumental, where most of the 70,000 fans with tickets were already in place when the violence occurred.
