The late night caused by typing up Tuesday’s Argentines Abroad post got the better of me, and I totally forgot to put up details of the seventh round of the Torneo Clausura, which is being played in midweek. Tuesday’s matches were generally high-scoring, with Racing’s agonising 1-1 draw against Huracán (who, as I type, have just secured a point courtesy of a late equaliser) the lowest-scoring game by a distance. There were five between Central and Arsenal, and eight – but no winner – shared between Boca and Vélez. In the latter match, Martín Palermo scored for Boca. According to some history books, he’s now level with Roberto Cherro’s all-time club record. To make it undisputed he’s got another three to go. The scores and goals from Tuesday’s matches, and the fixtures for the rest of the midweek round are right here.
