Boca beat Nacional Potosí 4-0 from Bolivia in La Bombonera in their last match in Group D of the South American Cup, but finished second in Group D and was not enough to qualify for the round of 16. Those led by Diego Martinez They must play a repechage called the 16th final with one of the third places in the zones of the Libertadores Cup to continue in the international tournament.
