VIDEO: Carlos Tevez sent into orbit by the type of challenge that could earn a jail sentence

Passion, rivalry, tribalism, no holding back. Just four of the reasons why Carlos Tevez packed his bag and headed home to Argentina this summer.

It was hoped that his goals would fire Boca to a league title but, despite their 3-1 win over Racing Club last night, they are going to fall short.

There was further hurt for Tevez in the form of a lusty sliding tackle that we thought had been consigned to the 1970s.

Tevez was skittled into the sky by the challenge and while the Racing defender won the ball, he did concede a free-kick. He wasn't happy about it but Tevez was none too chuffed himself.
