Boca Juniors drew 0-0 against Santos in the first leg of the Copa Libertadores semifinal on Wednesday.
Neither team could find a breakthrough in a cautious clash at La Bombonera.
The goalless draw, in which there were only four shots on goal, leaves the tie open for the second leg in Santos on January 13.
Sebastián Villa hit the crossbar for six-time champion Boca in the eighth minute, although the forward was offside.
Both teams pushed for a goal, but struggled to create a lot of note.
Santos, who last reached the Libertadores final in 2011, had a penalty call in the final after Marinho appeared to be knocked down by Carlos Izquierdoz.
