Saturday saw the clásico del Sur won by champions Banfield, who got an easy 2-0 victory at home over a Lanús who offered little or nothing in the way of inventive football, to put an end to an ignominious week for the Granate. Colombian James Rodríguez scored a real golazo for Banfield to put the seal on the win in stoppage time, after Lanús had two men sent off in the second half. Huracán and Godoy Cruz drew in Parque Patricios after the home side’s stadium was broken into on Friday morning and all their boots stolen, and in a potentially critical relegation clash Gimnasia La Plata got a 1-0 win at home to Racing. You can watch highlights from all three games right here, as well as a few from the B Nacional.
