Following the farcical attempt to play the superclásico in front of the world’s television cameras, it seems that all would’ve been fine had it been moved to Avellaneda; scarcely four miles away from La Bombonera, the Estadio Libertadores de América saw Independiente claim a 2-0 win over Rosario Central which ensures they remain ensconced at the top of the table. Godoy Cruz kept up the pressure with a 2-0 win of their own over champions Banfield, one of whose young fans tragically died in a traffic accident on the motorway between Buenos Aires and Mendoza on the way to the match. The super has been rescheduled for Thursday afternoon, after someone in the government pointed out the AFA that Wednesday was a public holiday. The goals from the Sunday matches that did go ahead are right here, as are all the weekend’s scores.
