Santos 3 x 2 Boca Juniors

This is an extremely rare game: the 1963 Copa Libertadores final first leg, Santos vs Boca Juniors. Santos won the second leg in Argentina and became the champions of Libertadores for the second time. These guys got their revenge in 2003, with Riquelme and his crew. But, what the hell, c'est la vie. At least we lost to Boca Juniors not LDU.

Here you can watch the goals for the first match and browse Kiske's collection of youtube videos. This guy is putting together the largest virtual archive about Santos FC that I know of.

Thanks to his hard work we can finally watch this classic in its entirety. You can download the whole game, which is divided in six parts, right here. If you want to follow his contributions you can do so by joining the Santos Digital Archive group on Orkut.
