There were plenty of draws in the fifth round of the 2010 Torneo Clausura, with only Friday offering goals in any real measure, but here you can see the heroes and villains from all the fixtures, including a not-so-happy 18th anniversary for Matías Almeyda who was (he thought harshly) sent off on the day his River Plate first team career came of age. Seba Verón had a happier time of it on Monday, setting up one goal from a corner and scoring (sort of) another as Estudiantes beat Huracán 2-0; you can watch the goals from that match right here and now.
