Former Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez was lucky to escape serious injury after being the victim of a horror challenge in a game between Boca Juniors and Lunas in the Copa Argentina.

Gustavo Gómez was sent off for viciously coming through Tevez' left leg in a challenge which sent the forward flying into the air.

The Lunas defender won the ball but could have caused serious damage to Tevez in the process.
