Buenos Aires, May 10 (IANS) Boca Juniors secured their second consecutive Argentine first division football title on Wednesday with a 2-2 draw away to Gimnasia.

Pablo Perez opened the scoring for the visitors at El Bosque stadium in La Plata before Nicolas Colazo equalised just after the half-hour mark, reported Xinhua news agency.

Ramon Abila restored Boca’s lead with a 57th-minute strike but Uruguayan Brahian Aleman again drew the hosts level with a long-range effort 10 minutes from time.
