Clausura ’08: Round 4 scores and scorers

Torneo Clausura 2008 logo

Sunday’s three matches saw River and Boca go joint top with Vélez after both winning, although River’s match against San Martín was called off with ten minutes left after heavy rain made the pitch unplayable. It’ll be completed at a later date. Racing, meanwhile, lost again, this time to fellow strugglers Newell’s by a solitary goal. Against San Martín, Sebastián Abreu scored his first competitive goal for River, whilst Boca’s winner against Gimnasia was Martín Palermo’s 180th for the club – which contrary to what all the reports will be saying, does not bring him to within one of the club record.

  1. So River gets the 3 points for now, but at some point San Martin will have to go back to the Monumental to play 8 minutes?

  2. Probably, Justin, although given that the Gimnasia – Arsenal match from the Apertura still hasn’t been played, don’t be too surprised if it’s a little while before the match is rearranged.

  3. Hi guys! Breaking news saying River could complete their match against San Martín de San Juan on March 19th.

    It’s a Wednesday with no Copa Libertadores action for River and San Martín could stay in town after they play the precedent Sunday (March 16th) against Estudiantes in La Plata (considerably closer to Buenos Aires than San Juan!).

    It’s still to be determined but it looks very likely.

  4. The most bizarre thing is that, according to the rules, they have to play those 8-9 minutes of the game, DIVIDED INTO TWO HALVES OF 4 or 4:30 MINUTES EACH!

    Are we allowed to bet LIVE on that match??? hahaha!
