Estudiantes take title in play-off with Boca

BUENOS AIRES, Dec 13 (Reuters) - Estudiantes came from behind to beat defending champions Boca Juniors 2-1 in a playoff on Wednesday to win the Argentine championship for the first time in 23 years.

Striker Mariano Pavone headed the winner nine minutes from time as Estudiantes completed a remarkable homecoming for midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron and gave Diego Simeone a major title less than one year into his coaching career.

Boca, aiming for their third successive title, took a fourth-minute lead through Martin Palermo but then sat back and Jose Sosa equalised in the 65th minute.

Both teams finished with 10 men after Boca forward Pablo Ledesma and Estudiantes defender Pablo Alvarez kicked each other and were sent off in the 39th minute.
