Buenos Aires:

South American champions Boca Juniors won their seventh domestic game in succession to stay top of the Argentine Clausura (Closing) championship on Sunday. Goals in each half from midfielder Javier Villarreal and striker Antonio Barijho secured Boca a two-nil win over mid-table Nueva Chicago at 'La Bombonera' Stadium in Buenos Aires. Boca, who won the Apertura (Opening) championship last winter, increase their lead to four points over their arch-rivals River Plate, the 2003 Clausura champions, who won two-one at San Lorenzo to move above Talleres who dropped to fourth after Velez Sarsfield beat Estudiantes three-one.
