MOST COMMENTED

Juan Roman Riquelme scored two second-half goals as Boca Juniors beat Gremio, 2-0, in Porto Alegre on Wednesday to win the Libertadores Cup by an aggregate score of 5-0 -- the largest margin of victory in the 48-year history of the competition.

Riquelme, playing the final match for Boca under its loan agreement with Spain's Villarreal, scored eight goals during the competition. He scored with a long-range effort in the 69th minute and slotted home a rebound 12 minutes later.

It was the sixth time Boca have won the competition -- the fourth time in the last eight years. Only Argentine rival Independiente has won more titles with a record of seven.

Sao Paulo of Brazil in 2005 and Boca in 1978 won the Libertadores Cup final by a margin of four goals.
