Brazilian club Corinthians won its first Copa Libertadores title on Wednesday, beating six-time champion Boca Juniors 2-0 to win the final 3-1 on aggregate.

Emerson opened the scoring in the 54th minute with a shot from close range after a free kick cross into the Boca Juniors area, then sealed the victory in a breakaway in the 72nd, sending a low shot into the far corner.

Corinthians was unbeaten over 14 matches of Latin America's main club competition, and set up its title with a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Argentina last week.

Boca Juniors was playing in its 10th final but fell short in its bid to match fellow Argentine team Independiente as the most successful club in Libertadores history.
