Boca Juniors Defeats Gremio for the Copa Libertadores Championship

Tonight in Porto Alegre, Brasil, Boca Juniors of Buenos Aires defeated Gremio, 0 x 2 (5 x 0 on aggregate) to win the Copa Libertadores, the club championship of South America, for the sixth time. Two second half goals by Juan Roman Riquelme put the tie beyond reach for the Brasilians.

With this victory, Boca now has 17 international titles. More than any other club in the world. Later this year, they will face AC Milan in the Intercontinental Cup to crown the best club team in the world.

Felicidades a Boca. "La mitad mas uno."

For video highlights, please click here. My cousin, Oscar Amoia, from Buenos Aires, has described Riquelme as "The Thermostat." Few in world football can orchestrate the flow and tempo of a game as he can. This was his third Copa Libertadore's title. His loan move from Villarreal appears to have been a stroke of brilliance. But where will "Romy" play next season?
