Walter Erviti scored in injury time on Sunday to rescue a 2-2 draw for Boca Juniors against River Plate in the Superclasico, the seasonal showdown between Argentina's two most famous clubs.
Erviti chipped the ball in from close range when River goalkeeper Marcelo Barovero misjudged another shot, giving the player an opening.
Leonardo Ponzio scored after only 90 seconds and Rodrgio Mora added another in 70th minute as River Plate took a 2-0 lead. Santiago Silva scored for Boca with a 76th-minute penalty in front of a sellout crowd at River's Monumental stadium.
Boca is now seven points behind leader Newell's Old Boys. River Plate is 10 off the pace.
