And he doubled Boca’s lead against his boyhood club Estudiantes with a powerful strike from outside the penalty area.

Sebastian Villa’s free-kick was initially headed clear but only into the path of Rojo.

The 32-year-old killed the ball dead with his first touch and powered his shot into the top left corner.

Rojo hardly celebrated, most likely due to his ties to Estudiantes, but his team-mates made sure to mob him.

Villa added a third shortly after and Estudiantes pulled a goal back late on – but it wasn’t enough to stage a comeback.

The win lifted Boca up to 11th in the Argentine Primera Division.

Boca have won five but also lost five in ten games.

The match will be played away from home and not at Boca’s “catastrophe waiting to happen” La Bombonera stadium.
