Clausura 2010: round 5 Saturday goals

Darío Gandín celebrates winning the clásico for Independiente

Saturday’s biggest match was the first ever clásico de Avellaneda to be played at the new Doble Visera, and it was a good result for the home side, with Independiente winning by just one goal – and that from the spot. Darío Gandín scored the crucial penalty as El Rojo won 1-0. In the day’s other matches, Colón drew with Central after taking the lead and Huracán got some revenge for the decisive Clausura match of last season – they beat Vélez Sársfield 3-2 in a thriller. You can see all the goals right here.

Independiente 1 – 0 Racing

Huracán 3 – 2 Vélez Sársfield

Colón 1 – 1 Rosario Central

  1. Bizarrely, the second half, particularly after Hauche was sent off, was the best I’ve seen Racing play all year. Independiente were totally outplayed in that second half and lucky to stagger to a win.
    Racing MUST take this form into midweek and beat Huracán, because I don’t think Arsenal are gonna get anything from Central. But Racing have a terrible recent record against Huracán, and they’ve really come back to attacking form with their new coach, so I’m worried about being 4 points adrift by next weekend :-(
    As for Colón-Central, there was a chance in the second half when Bichi had the ball ten yards out and space to shoot, and hit the post and it bounced into the keeper’s hands. Honestly, I would have put my house on Bichi scoring from there – he had so much time, I probably had the chance to log on to Bet and Win and do so. I really hope that doesn’t make a difference at the end of the season, Chaca are pulling away, so one point could make all the difference.

  2. GELP-River…

    From the way he said ‘gol’, I think even the commentator didn’t want River to equalise…
