BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Boca Juniors beat Talleres 5-4 on penalties to win the Copa Argentina on Wednesday after a 0-0 draw over 90 minutes.

The Buenos Aires side triumphed despite playing the last 25 minutes with 10 men after Juan Ramirez was sent off.

Boca scored all five of their penalties, with Hector Fertoli’s spot kick saved by Boca keeper Agustin Rossi.

The title, their 49th domestic trophy according to Boca stats, guarantees them direct entry into the group stages of next year’s Copa Libertadores.
