One goal from Nicolas Colazo in minute 34 was enough for Boca to punch their ticket into Group 5 of the Copa Libertadores. The team managed by Arruabarrena will be in the same group as Zamora from Venezuela, Wanderers from Uruguay, and one of Chilean side Palestino and Nacional from Uruguay.

The game between Boca and Velez was extremely tense, with neither side pulling their punches. It ended with referee German Delfino sending off Velez stars Fausto Grillo and Leandro Somoza, with Boca’s Andres Chavez also seeing red.

The Argentine representatives in the continental competition will be Huracan (who will face Alianza Lima from Peru) and Estudiantes de La Plata, while San Lorenzo, Boca Juniors, River Plate, and Racing Club have already guaranteed their place in the group stage.
