Boca move to within touching distance of title


RIO DE JANEIRO, May 6 — Ramon Abila scored twice in the last 15 minutes as Boca Juniors edged closer to the Superliga Argentina title on Sunday with a 2-0 victory over Union Santa Fe.

Abila benefitted from two Cristian Pavon assists to net his eighth and ninth goals of the campaign at Boca’s Bombonera stadium.

The result means that the Buenos Aires outfit need only a draw from either of their last two matches – against Gimnasia on Wednesday and Huracan on Sunday – to win their second consecutive top-flight title.

Union are ninth in the 28-team standings, 16 points off the pace.

In other matches on Sunday, Patronato won 2-1 at Temperley, Gimnasia drew 2-2 at Independiente, Lanus held hosts Tigre to a goalless draw and Racing Club won 2-1 at Estudiantes.
