Clausura ’08: Round 11 scores and scorers

River Plate lost their unbeaten record on Sunday afternoon as Central surprised even themselves by getting one over on Diego Simeone’s men, who got a let-off after his old team Estudiantes – who were finally awarded the points for the called-off match against Racing on Friday – slipped up away to Tigre. Martín Palermo continued adding to his Boca tally against Newell’s (maybe one day he’ll get close to the real club record…), and Racing just couldn’t win twice in a row, even when it seemed impossible not to. There was an important win for Colón in the relegation battle against San Martín as well. Twenty-nine goals and six red cards this weekend. To see who got them, read on…

  1. River had about 8 free kicks in dangerous positions in the 2nd half, and played every last one of them too close to the keeper. Maybe they were convinced he’d make a mistake – he didn’t. They fought to the end, but it was disappointing to see them waste so many chances in the same manner.

  2. By this time, some cine producers should began serioulsy thinking in a movie about Palermo’s life. He’s not skilled with his legs, he’s not fast, he didn’t shoot well but… he always scores! From 60 yards, four times in a match, with an injured knee, after half a year without play…
    Palermo continues playing his first role in the movie of his life.
