3. ARGENTINA: Boca plays off for title on Wednesday
Last week, Boca Juniors coach Ricardo Lavolpe joked that he'll be hanged
if Boca finishes second. His team had already blown one chance to clinch the
title, losing 1-0, to Belgrano Dec. 3. In its last game of the season on Sunday,
Boca fell to Lanus, 2-1, a result that would still have delivered the title had
Estudiantes, coached by former Argentine star Diego Simoene, not scored
twice in the last five minutes to beat Arsenal, 2-0.
The results force a playoff for the title between Boca and Estudiantes on
Wednesday (TV: 3 pm ET live on Fox Sports en Espanol; 5 pm ET delay on Fox
