Apertura ’07: Round 11 scores, scorers and goals

Primera A 2007 Apertura logo

Since I was unable to put up separate stories for them today, what follows is a bit of a bumper post combining the usual Primera A scores and scorers rundown with the goal videos. There were 28 strikes in all, the most newsworthy coming in El Sur on Saturday and El Coloso del Parque on Sunday, when both Independiente and Boca fell to shock defeats. Gimnasia de Jujuy thrashed their more illustrious namesakes, and Vélez and Arsenal played out the only goalless match of the weekend.

Primera División Torneo Apertura 2007, eleventh round:
Olimpo de Bahía Blanca (J. Lujambio 27; M. Martínez 59; M. Olivi 76) 3 – 1 Huracán (F. Mendoza 84; F. Nieto OFF 82)
Estudiantes de La Plata (A. Alayes 82; E. Maggiolo 89) 2 – 2 Tigre (N. Ayala 21; J. C. Blengio 26)
Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy (M. Berza 19; O. Miranda 46; C. Carranza 68; M. Quinteros 74) 4 – 0 Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata
Vélez Sársfield 0 – 0 Arsenal de Sarandí
Colón de Santa Fé (D. Gandín 43) 1 – 1 San Martín de San Juan (J. S. Brusco 68)
Banfield (J. Barrales 45+1; C. Lucchetti 77) 2 – 0 Independiente
River Plate (A. Ríos 62; D. Buonanotte 74; R. Falcao García 90+8) 3 – 3 Rosario Central (M. García 40; D. Díaz 48; R. Raldes 90+3)
Racing Club (M. Romagnoli 12) 1 – 1 Lanús (J. Sand 70)
San Lorenzo de Almagro (N. Silvera 4, OFF 44; O. Ferreyra 75) 2 – 1 Argentinos Juniors (N. Ortigoza 12; L. Fleitas OFF 67)
Newell’s Old Boys (S. Salcedo 12) 1 – 0 Boca Juniors

With the top two both losing and Tigre and Lanús both only drawing, it’s become a tiny bit tighter at the top. Independiente have 22, Boca 20, the other two are both on 18, as are Banfield, in fifth. At the bottom, Central are on 8, Olimpo on 9, Gimnasia 11, Estudiantes 12 and Huracán and Gimnasia de Jujuy both on 13.

  1. Excellent work as always Sam, but you can’t really prefer Buonanotte’s goal to Falcao’s death-defying, unbelievably high flying header at the death?

  2. I think what did it for me, Justin, was the way Buonanotte landed two men on their arses before hitting an absolute stinger, AND it was his first ever professional strike.

    Besides which Falcao’s already had plenty of attention this week!
