On Saturday, 6th March 2010, Racing Club de Avellaneda gained a new supporter. How much the players know about it I can’t say. But at 3:40pm HEGS reader and my good friend Seba welcomed his first son into the world. As if by way of celebration, a couple of hours later, Racing visited Boca Juniors and won the clásico 2-1 in La Bombonera, thanks to a goal on the stroke of half time from the outstanding Gabriel Hauche, after Nicolás Gaitán had given Boca the lead with a brilliant chest-and-volley. Felicidades twice over to you, Seba (and to Felipe, who if he’d been concious of this first win couldn’t have any idea what he’s in for with that team…)! In the other match on Saturday, Lanús hosted Estudiantes and, with two sides of substitutes due to upcoming Copa Libertadores commitments, a dull 0-0 was played out. Highlights of both games are right here.
Boca Juniors 1 – 2 Racing Club
Lanús 0 – 0 Estudiantes de La Plata
