Torneo Apertura 2009: Round 5 scores and scorers

The weekend’s clásico was a damp squib, with San Lorenzo and Racing cancelling each other out in Boedo. Earlier on Sunday Newell’s beat Lanús to go fifth, whilst on Saturday Chacarita’s pointless start to the season continued with a 3-1 defeat to Colón, and Independiente took a point from the champions, Vélez Sársfield. Godoy Cruz claimed another win over Boca after Cristian Chávez (not that one!) scored a late winner in a five goal thriller which saw some poor defending, a wrongly-allowed goal and Juan Martín Del Potro’s presentation to the crowd after his win over Roger Federer at the US Open last week. River Plate’s loss away to Arsenal late on Sunday may very well spell the end for Néstor Gorosito as manager. All the heroes and villains are right here.
