Monday brought the end of the fifteenth round of the 2012 Torneo Clausura, and a result which means the last four rounds of the championship are going to be really gripping; Arsenal de Sarandí beat Lanús 3-1, a result which means they’re joint second along with Tigre and Newell’s Old Boys, just a point behind leaders and defending champions Boca Juniors. With All Boys only a further point behind and even sixth-placed Vélez only five off the lead, it’s anyone’s guess who’ll take the title. The goals from Arsenal v Lanús, and all the weekend’s scores, are right here.
