Apertura ’08: Round 15 scores and scorers


Hard to say what was the biggest surprise this weekend: River winning after twelve matches; Argentinos vs. Estudiantes producing a performance (from one side at least); Vélez beating Boca in La Bombonera, or the upshot of that score, which means the leadership of the table is now shared between San Lorenzo and Tigre with four matches to go. There were 27 goals this weekend, and three matches featured five or more. Read on for the heroes and villains…

  1. Tough loss for Boca, but still in the mix. Ischia’s patchwork, three across the back defense struggled, and Forlin was horrible out on the edge. The loss of Paletta is huge. Hopefully, Morel will be back soon.

    Tigre looks hot at the right time.

  2. jajaja… the problem with Sam is that deep inside he wishes Boca played locally at the Monumental… it would be the only opportunity for a local team to win there!!! jajajaja
