Tévez beauty condemns Boca to opening loss

Boca Juniors fans were left fuming as the club went down 1-0 to Newell's Old Boys in the first match of the Transición championship, with Mauricio Tévez hitting on his debut to cap a special day for the teenager in the Bombonera.

The 18-year-old striker produced a strike reminiscent of namesake, former Boca legend Carlos, to smash home from outside the area in the final minutes of the first half, consigning the Xeneize to defeat as they adapted to life without Juan Román Riquelme.

Boca attempted to mount a comeback, but the lack of inventiveness in the absence of the No. 10, who moved to Argentinos Juniors in the winter following a contract dispute, was evident. Newell's also had chances to extend the winning margin, with Maxi Rodríguez firing an effort wide in the second 45 minutes.

The reverse marks the second loss in as many games for Boca, who earlier in the season crashed out of the Copa Argentina 2-0 to B Nacional club Huracán. Carlos Bianchi's charges will return to action next Sunday, when they travel to Córdoba to take on Belgrano.
