The twelfth round of the Torneo Apertura 2009 got underway on Saturday, and I’m afraid to say, following the midweek round of matches and the fact I was out on Friday night, that it caught me out. On Saturday, champions Vélez hosted and brushed aside Godoy Cruz, before Racing – Racing! – gave Atlético Tucumán an absolute pasting, 4-0. In the last match of the day San Lorenzo, who’ve had their fair share of last-minute winners in 2009, got a taste of their own medicine, as Gimnasia got a stoppage time equaliser to draw 2-2 in El Bosque. All the remaining fixtures for the twelfth round – which runs through until Tuesday night – are right here.
All kick off times are local. Add three hours for Greenwich Mean Time / UCT.
