Clausura ’09: Round 18 scores and scorers

The title race is going down to the last weekend – in two weeks’ time – and will be decided when the top two, Huracán and Vélez, play each other in Liniers, after the latter drew with Lanús to leave the Granate out of the race. San Martín kept their slim chances alive, as did Gimnasia La Plata with a win in La Bombonera. Godoy Cruz ensured another year of top flight football in Mendoza. Oh, and Racing aren’t even going to be dragged into the playoffs. All the heroes and villains can be found right here.
