Last gasp Carrizo golazo saves Boca from defeat in Bolivia (VIDEO)


Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s arrival has not yet lifted the gloom around Boca Juniors at present and after two dreadful goalless draws against Racing and River, it took a last second Federico Carrizo free kick to salvage a point from their trip to La Paz.

Erwin Saavedra’s thunderous first half strike looked to have sealed the points for the home side and while most sides in the altitude of La Paz run out of steam in the final stages, Boca forced an unlikely equaliser. Some 35 yards out and already over the allotted four minutes of stoppage time, Federico Carrizo hit an unstoppable shot into the top corner for what could be a valuable point.

Boca remain outside the two qualification places but only a point behind Bolívar, who must travel to La Bombonera in a few weeks.
