Clausura 2010: Round 13 is already upon us

I’m a little distracted with various things at present, not least the preparations for my move next week to Buenos Aires. As such there’s no Argentines Abroad this week, other than a congratulations to Lionel Messi for that astonishing four-goal haul in tonight’s European Cup match between Barcelona and Arsenal, which makes him Barça’s all-time highest Champions League goalscorer. The thirteenth round of the Torneo Clausura has also slipped in under the HEGS radar, and began on Tuesday evening with Tigre comfortably seeing off Atlético Tucumán and Huracán claiming a rare away win over Arsenal de Sarandí. You can view the goals from those matches right here, as well as the kick off times for the other matches in the round and, just for the hell of it, those goals from Lio.

All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.

  1. If ever there were a 45-minute spell to sum up Boca right now, it would be that first half against Colon. They’ve dominated large portions of the half, worked numerous excellent positions, had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside and yet still gone into the break 2-0 down thanks to more gaping holes in the defence. Poor old Ayala didn’t have much chance with the goals on his first start for Boca (I believe). Boca are so, so, so desperate to get a leader in defence that can actually organise the backline, because players like Bonilla and Munoz have talent. Without a leader, they’re just all over the place.

  2. Well flying studs of frustration are just what Boca needs, right? One more ‘Ole’ from the Colon hincha and it would of been 4-0.

  3. I missed Colon and I’ll miss the next match. A great time for a Bostero to be out of the country. Yes !! The “deathwatch” is getting old.
