Torneo Clausura 2010: Round 12 scores and scorers

Sunday’s matches saw another loss for River Plate and Godoy Cruz kept up the chase at the top following Independiente’s win on Saturday. The big story though has been Boca Juniors’ 2-1 loss to Central, during which Juan Román Riquelme was sent off for badmouthing the referee after Central’s second goal. TV panellists are now asking whether his relationship with Martín Palermo is Boca’s main problem at present. Also on Sunday, Estudiantes and Banfield drew 1-1 in Quilmes. All the heroes and villains are right here, along with the goals from Sunday’s matches.

Primera División Torneo Clausura 2010, twelfth round:

Lanús (S. Blanco 41) 1 – 0 River Plate

For the moment, Leonardo Astrada clings to his job as River Plate manager, but Diego Simeone left his at San Lorenzo on Saturday and as HEGS has already reported, he’s been replaced by Sebastián Méndez.

Estudiantes 1 – 1 Banfield

Boca 1 – 2 Central

Godoy Cruz 2 – 0 Vélez

Lanús 1 – 0 River

  1. Ha ! The Roman and Palermo feud has been a huge issue for two years ! Maybe there has been more evidence of it lately, I don’t know. Add in an aging squad, the selling of lots of talent, inept management, and you have the recipe for Boca’s fall from grace.

    1. Oh I know that, but they were really going some after last night’s final match, showing clip after clip of the 2006 World Cup highlighting Riquelme’s supposed reluctance to pass to Hernán Crespo and asking whether it was really just centre forwards in general he didn’t like. It was bizarre…

    1. My paranoid buddy Bostero Forever thinks TYC has a master plan to insure Boca and River get relegated over the next two years. Then TYC would be able to show all their matches. Some kind of smoky, backroom deal with the Boca and River big cheese’s. Sounds absurd but you never know.:)

    2. Justin, going on the current points totals, and assuming Chaca and Atlético Tucumán both go straight down and the two clubs in the playoffs both stay up, River would start the Apertura in the top playoff spot (17th in the Promedio table), having got the fourth worst points totals in both 2008-2009, and so far this season.

      Of course, if three or four sides went down this season and the newly-promoted sides got off to a flyer…
