It was a quiet Sunday afternoon, really. Sergio Agüero was man of the match as Atlético de Madrid comfortably beat Deportivo La Coruña 3-0 in A Coruña, setting up two and scoring the second. Fabricio Coloccini, who started for the hosts, didn’t have the best of matches. Oh, and a Clarín online poll which is still running currently has 40.3% of nearly 90,000 voters naming Carlos Tevez as the best Argentine forward of the moment playing outside the country. Lionel Messi – injured for the last couple of weeks – is second on 28.5%. Boca, meanwhile, are welcoming a new addition at last.
Lucas Castromán arrives on a one-year loan deal from his Mexican side Club América. The former Vélez striker will take his medical on Monday having agreed terms with Boca on Sunday. Castromán was key to Vélez’s championship win in the 2005 Clausura, and Boca are paying a fee in the region of US$700,000 for the loan deal.
