Boca Juniors failed to make it a record equalling seventh victory in the South American equivalent of the Champions League – Copa Libertadores – after their defeat against Independiente del Valle.
The Ecuadorian side managed to get a 2-1 lead from the first leg. Even though Boca Juniors were confident of making a strong comeback in the second leg at home, they failed to do so and ended up losing 3-2. Striker Carlos Tevez was expected to have a major impact in both these games, but he failed to score. Manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto claimed that the striker was depressed with his inability to help the team win the Copa Libertadores.
