Libertadores 2013: Boca beat Barcelona (of Ecuador) 2-1 to claim first win of the year (video)

On Wednesday evening, Boca Juniors visited Barcelona Sporting Club of Ecuador in the Copa Libertadores, and managed their first win since the opening match of the 2013 Torneo Final, beating the hosts 2-1. Juan Manuel Martínez and Claudio Pérez each got their first goals since signing for Boca to send the visitors into a 2-0 lead, before Michael Arroyo clawed a goal back with a penalty with seconds to go – the fourth penalty Boca have given away in five competitive games in 2013, incidentally. All the goals are right here, as ever.

See the light blue training vest Carlos Bianchi’s wearing in that video when he celebrates? Apparently the referee told him to put it on because he was too easy to confuse with Boca’s mainly white shirts, and it’s now become A Thing in the Argentine press, who are asking whether this is going to be a good luck charm. God help us.
