Apertura ’08: Round 13 scores and scorers

A low-scoring weekend, this one. River Plate fielded a reserve side (the first team have already flown to Mexico to prepare for the Copa Sudamericana quarter-final second leg), lost to Lanús and remain rooted to the bottom of the table; Boca Juniors beat leaders San Lorenzo in the clásico in La Bombonera; Tigre lost, away to Argentinos Juniors, and Newell’s Old Boys beat Central in the Rosario derby. This leaves us with three teams (San Lorenzo, Tigre and Boca) on 26 points at the top, and Newell’s three behind. All the weekend’s goalscorers, right here.

  1. Not a great game for Racing, we failed to take advantage of Central losing the derby. I’m slightly concerned about the next match, as I watched San Martin v Colon and thought it was the best game of the week. San Martin are a good side, and their goal was beautifully put together.

    Just shows the difference between Argentine and English league football. In Argentina, a newly-promoted side relies on the skill and vision of a Primera A enganche like Patricio Perez… in England, a newly-promoted side relies on a man who can throw the ball a very long way. *rolls eyes*

  2. Of course, Matthew, you could always look at Hull City instead of Stoke…

    I saw Stoke’s goals online last night though, and I couldn’t believe a side like Arsenal were caught out like that for the first one. Amazing.

  3. Garcia Cuerva (Racing’s visible head in this transition period) has said that there will be elections as early as this year (December 21 being the probable date).

    It’s good news for any team but I don’t know if it is for Racing. I’m too scare we are going to fall under the same thieves from the past.

    I hope corruption does not take a big part in the elections (I’m a dreamer, yes) and I wish we can have a decent president for the first time in maybe 3 or 4 decades.

  4. Thanks for mentioning it, Seba. Exploring Lisbon isn’t leaving me with the time to update as much as I normally would, but I’ll be trying to write a little something on the elections in the days before they go ahead.
