Apertura ’07: round 6 scores and scorers

Primera A 2007 Apertura logo

Another round is over, and we’ve seen the last undefeated record in the top flight (Huracán’s) fall, other promoted sides claim important points and a clásico that finished all square and left no-one really satisfied. Notable results in the lower divisions were Aldosivi’s demolition job against Independiente Rivadavia and Talleres’ win over Instituto in this week’s Córdoba derby, both in B Nacional and Morón’s away win in the Oeste derby against Merlo in Primera B. For the scores and scorers, step this way.

After six rounds of the Apertura, Boca lead by a single point from Independiente and Vélez (13 for Boca, 12 each for the two trailing). Lanús and Tigre have ten each. Central are the only side yet to win and have just three points at the bottom, whilst the places above them are filled by Olimpo (4 points) and River (6).
