Clausura 2010: (most of?) the round 8 Sunday goals

As I type Atlético Tucumán vs Banfield is goalless during the second half, and I won’t be staying up late enough to wait for the goal videos to go online. Earlier on Sunday, though, there’ve been a few already, in steadily decreasing numbers. The day’s first match, between Huracán and Tigre, saw five – with the visitors winning by the odd one. Newell’s vs Godoy Cruz saw three goals, the clásico between Independiente and River two, and Argentinos Juniors vs Vélez Sársfield only one. You can watch all of those right here.

Huracán 2 – 3 Tigre

Newell’s Old Boys 2 – 1 Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba

Independiente 2 – 0 River Plate

Argentinos Juniors 1 – 0 Vélez Sársfield

  1. Good stuff – as I can’t stay up and watch the Sunday matches as late as I used to, this saves me trawling through the YouTube search and still ending up with videos of the equivalent fixtures of the 2008 Apertura…

    You all want to look out for the vid of the goal Parra’s just scored against San Lorenzo, admittedly against an injured Migliore.
    This could be Simeone’s last game if San Lorenzo don’t win this. (1-1 at half time)

  2. Unbelieveable, San Lorenzo actually played some pretty good football in the second half – instead of just trying to fire corner kicks at Bottinelli’s head – and without Romagnoli too.
    I kept losing connection, so I don’t know for sure why Romagnoli didn’t come out for the second half, was it the knock he received early on? Hope he plays against Central. Bernie has got Simeone out of a hole tonight though, he’s still a brilliant finisher with his feet and head.

    A draw in GELP-Central was the best result for Racing, though a Gimnasia win wouldn’t have been too bad. The summariser said that Central’s next fixtures were ‘terrible’ – San Lorenzo, Independiente, Huracán and Boca. Who is he kidding? I can easily see them getting three wins from those matches. I think everyone can guess which three. It was worrying to see Jonny Gómez really start to get into his stride in the second half. His battle with Encina shows he can dig a bit as well as having a lot of skill.
