Clausura ’09: Round 18 fixtures

The penultimate round of Torneo Clausura matches is played this weekend, after which we’ve got a fortnight’s gap due to next week’s Argentine elections. Vélez Sársfield would win the league on Sunday if they beat Lanús and Huracán lose against Arsenal (two matches which will be played simultaneously). San Martín de Tucumán will be relegated if they don’t beat Newell’s in Rosario tonight, and just for a bit of extra spice, there’s a Saturday clásico between Independiente and San Lorenzo. Oh, and if Racing can beat already-relegated Gimnasia de Jujuy, they will have achieved salvación a full three matches earlier than expected.

All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.

  1. Seba, Matthew: lest you miss it, because I’m sure you’ll be wanting to talk about it, there will be a post going online a few hours before the Racing game on Saturday that will be specifically for you guys to leave any comments on that match. I’m going to a friend’s birthday party on Saturday so won’t be around to watch / give my own take on it, but I’ve already written the post – it’ll be online on Saturday afternoon. Buena suerte to both of you!

  2. Gracias Sam! Nice gesture!

    I won’t be online either. I’ll be at Avellaneda watching the game with my granpa Manolo (89, still following Racing and well aware of our situation and all the players in our squad!) and with a big part of my (almost entirely) Racing supporting family.

  3. Sounds like a great get-together Seba, and a celebration of another year of top division football!

    I think if Llop had stayed, or we had got any other coach than Caruso – I mean Falcioni, even Simeone – then it would have been ‘B’ already. Caruso has made himself nearly a legend, with not very much to work with.
