Apertura ’08: Round 19 scores and scorers

apertura-2008-logo

It’s not over just yet. The Torneo Apertura proper came to a conclusion this weekend but so far we only know the order of things at one end of the table. Yes that’s right, it’s official: River Plate are rubbish. The top four all won – in Lanús’s case in vain – so the title itself will be decided by a three-way playoff. More details on that a little later. Elsewhere, Racing ended a mixed 2008 with a loss, and there was a happy return for Huracán.
