Boca Juniors slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Racing Club on Sunday after a Guillermo Burdisso own goal and a penalty scored by home goalkeeper Sebastian Saja secured all three points for La Academia.

The 34-year-old is making something of a name for himself at the opposite end of the football pitch, after netting a spot-kick in a 4-0 victory over his old club San Lorenzo back in September.

And, Saja was at it again at Estadio Presidente Peron last night, stepping up in the 47th minute to successfully double Racing's lead and helping them qualify for the Copa Sudamericana.

Meanwhile, Boca Juniors remain locked in a relegation battle and sit second bottom of the Argentine Primera Division table with 14 points from 17 games.
