Libertadores 2013: Boca start with a loss thanks to Toluca golazo (video)

Last season’s runners-up Boca Juniors took the field in South America’s premier club competition last night, and got off to a wobbly start, losing 2-1 to Mexican side Toluca. As on Saturday against Quilmes, Boca were poor at the back, and although they went in at the break with a 1-0 lead thanks to a Santiago Silva penalty, Toluca turned the tables in the second half with a well-taken equaliser and a superb lob to win it from Carlos Esquivel and Edgar Benítez, respectively. The goals are here in HD, and as a bonus the goals from Atlético Rafaela’s and All Boys’ victories in the Copa Argentina, also last night, are also below the line.

Boca 1 – 2 Toluca

Atlético Rafaela 2 – 1 Alvarado

Rodrigo Depetris gave Rafaela an early lead in this one, but Alvarado, of Torneo Argentino A (the third tier) equalised through Ignacio Anívole with just under ten minutes left until half time. Minutes after that, though, Diego Vera scored what proved to be the winner. Rafaela, with a mix of regular starters and reserves, are into the next round.

All Boys 4 – 1 Brown de Adrogué

Emanuel Perea and Ángel Vildozo (the latter from the penalty spot) put All Boys into a lead  inside the first twenty minutes which they wouldn’t let slip. Gastón Grecco pulled one back ten minutes after half time, but late on a fine free kick from Santiago Montoya Múñoz and a mazy second from Vildozo put the final gloss on the scoreline.
