River Plate and Boca Juniors drew 1-1 in the last clásico of the Torneos de Verano on Sunday night, after which a penalty shootout decided that the Copa Revancha went to River, who won the penalties 3-2. You can watch both goals and the shootout right here. Lucas Viatri headed Boca into the lead after just over half an hour, before Gustavo Bou levelled the scores in the 51st minute. After the match, Boca confirmed that team manager Alfio Basile and general manager Carlos Bianchi are leaving the club after a hideous 2009. Abel Alves, the reserves’ head coach, will be the first team coach until June, it was confirmed today.
