Boca prepare to unveil Tevez

Boca Juniors are top of the Argentine league championship as they prepare to unveil Carlos Tevez for his second spell at the club.

A goal from striker Sebastian Palacios after half an hour gave Boca a 1-0 win at Sarmiento on Sunday, lifting them into first place a point ahead of San Lorenzo and three in front of River Plate.

Tevez, back home in Buenos Aires after a decade in Europe, missed the resumption of the championship because he is on holiday after playing for Argentina at the Copa America.

He will be officially presented to the media and is expected to make his comeback in next weekend's home match against Quilmes at La Bombonera.

"I've got a nice little mess," said Boca coach Rodolfo Arruabarrena as he contemplated the prospect of finding a place for Tevez in his team among a number of strikers in good form.

"They all want to play but I'm the one who takes the decisions and these will always be for the good of the team," he told reporters.

San Lorenzo drew 1-1 at Union and River were also held 1-1 by Temperley at El Monumental as they rested first choice players for tonight's first leg of their Libertadores Cup semi-final against Guarani of Paraguay.
