Wednesday night saw the final of last season’s Copa Argentina finally played (having been delayed at the end of the season due to Boca Juniors’ participation in the Copa Libertadores final). Racing had the majority of possession, but didn’t do anything like enough with it, and with excellent goals from Santiago Silva and Lucas Viatri, Boca got a deserved 2-1 win. Racing’s consolation goal was scored by Valentín Viola, playing his last match for the club before moving to Sporting in Portugal. I’ll have last weekend’s Primera goals online in a little while, but for now here are the goals from Wednesday’s final.
