BUENOS AIRES, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Boca Juniors scored three second-half goals to cruise to a 3-0 away victory over Central Cordoba in Argentina's Primera Division on Tuesday.

Lucas Blondel opened the scoring with a low finish after combining with Cristian Medina and Lucas Janson doubled the advantage on the hour by firing home after Ezequiel Fernandez's pass.

The visitors put the result beyond doubt in stoppage time when Dario Benedetto headed in after a latching onto Norberto Briasco's cross.

The result at Estadio Unico in Santiago del Estero lifts Boca to fourth in Group B with two wins from five games, two points behind leaders Newell's Old Boys.

In other Primera Division fixtures on Tuesday, Huracan won 2-0 at home to Gimnasia and Rosario Central were held to a 1-1 home draw by Independiente.
