Torneo Apertura 2009: Round 3 fixtures

‘Where’s my week gone?!’ I can hear you inwardly asking. Don’t worry – you’ve not been in a coma since Monday. Due to the upcoming World Cup qualifiers (notably that between Argentina and Brazil in Rosario on Saturday) the AFA have moved the third round of the Torneo Apertura to midweek. Rosario Central vs River Plate has been postponed until next week, so as to avoid Cristian Fabbiani and company making a mess of the pitch prior to señores Messi, Agüero, Tevez and Heinze showing off their silky skills. All the kick off times are here, as ever.

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

Primera División Torneo Apertura 2009, third round:
Arsenal Fútbol Club vs Racing Club (Weds, 14:10)
San Lorenzo de Almagro vs Estudiantes de La Plata (Weds, 16:10)
Argentinos Juniors vs Lanús (Weds, 20:10)
Huracán vs Atlético de Tucumán (Thurs, 16:00)

  1. Looking for Seba in the crowd, je je!

    Grazzini is dropped for Racing, don’t know anything about Britez Ojeda, but I suppose I’ll find out a little over the next 2 hours. VAMOS AKD!

  2. It was an improvement on the first two matches. In that I complained that Racing never created anything remotely dangerous in those games, this time we had loads of really good chances. But missed them all :-(

    Arsenal looked a really really poor side though, so if we can’t win or even score against them, it’s worrying. What has happened to Ramirez since he joined Racing?! I would’ve expected him to score at least once from the chances he had.
    Brian Lluy had the best game, along with Cahais, I thought. As Arsenal were pretty poor attacking, they were able to get upfield and be a bit more dangerous than they might against better sides.
    Lucero started well but faded, same with Rosano. Luguercio was well off form :-(
    Too early to rate this Britez Ojeda, he’s come from Ascenso, played one good pass but didn’t seem to be on top of things for most of the game.
    Didn’t notice the back-up keeper much, Arsenal didn’t exactly work him hard.
    Sorry Gimnasia, we HAVE to win in 10 days. But, with San Lorenzo turning in on themselves at home again, maybe we have a chance there too?
    Papu Gomez missed a chance for CASLA that even Ramirez in current form might have scored ha ha, he’s not really a strike partner for Berni is he?

  3. And a cracking game that turned out to be, with subsititutions again key. Blast from the past from Romagnoli – Sam already feeling smug about picking him out as one to watch in his Enganche preview? ;-)
