Two 3-1 wins

Saturday’s matches saw two 3-1 wins, one for Independiente and then one for San Lorenzo, to keep both sides just a point apart in their battle to hang onto the coat-tails of the leading pack. Independiente got a comfortable away win against Olimpo, whilst San Lorenzo claimed their sixth win on the trot in the Nuevo Gasometro against Rosario Central, who as a result slip back into the relegation playoff spots.

Germán Denis struck twice for El Rojo in Bahía Blanca, either side of a Daniel Montenegro goal to send the visitors in 3-0 up at half time. With four minutes left, Josemir Lujambio pulled back a consolation for Olimpo, but it was too little too late, and the provincial Buenos Aires side continue at the bottom of the Promedio. If Racing can get a point against Arsenal on Sunday, Olimpo will also go bottom of the Torneo Clausura table.

Central aren’t doing an awful lot better in the relegation table, but visited Ramón Díaz’s side looking to continue a vastly improved campaign in the Clausura. As it proved, though, an early goal from Gonzalo Bergessio put them on the back foot straight away, and Bernardo Romeo got a second just 23 minutes in to effectively kill the match as a contest, in spite of Central’s 29th minute goal from Leonardo Borzani. Adrián González got one just before the hour to put it beyond doubt for the hosts, who are now sixth on 15 points with Sunday’s matches still to come. Central, though tenth in the Clausura, drop to 17th in the Promedio.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Colón beat Huracán 1-0 in a showdown between Antonio ‘Turco‘ Mohamed’s new team and his old one, and Banfield drew with Gimnasia in a match for which the 0-0 scoreline was more than fitting, by all accounts.

  1. VAMOS RACING! Come on! Finally! 1 win after 9 matches of complete struggle.

    It was ugly, but thanks to a lovely free-kick we won it and now we can breath a little bit easier.


    4 results went our way this weekend! That’s exactly what we need, even if I had to support the old enemies such as Boca (defeated Gimnasia de Jujuy), Independiente (defeated Olimpo) and (to a less extent) San Lorenzo (defeated Rosario Central).

    Now Velez are playing and we need them to win as well!

    A happy Monday coming my way!

  2. Hooray for suffering Seba. Boca was victorious but you know they are struggling when Datolo Idioto is their best player. Is there a worse keeper than Migliore in el todo mundo ? He should be a backup in the “Z” league. Boca should trade him to someone for a six pack of beer and some beef jerky.

  3. Can anybody tell me what was Migliore doing in that part of the area when the jujeño scored by the head?
    He was not here nor there. He looked like lost in space…
    I agree with you, Johnny.
    We Bosteros didn’t have a second goalkeeper, like in the times when we had Cordoba and Pato, or Pato and Caranta. Now we have Caranta and… nobody!!!
    I proposed one time to trade him for a couple of banners for the corners.
