Coverage of the fourteenth round of the Torneo Clausura here on HEGS has already been, and will again be, a little delayed due to various farewells I’m making here in England prior to my flight to Buenos Aires on Wednesday. So bear with me, and forgive me for not having got these fixtures online before the first matches of the round were played. Saturday saw Newell’s and Huracán both claim comfortable home victories before a rather more surprising home loss – leaders Independiente lost for the first time at the new Estadio Libertadores de América, 1-0 to San Lorenzo, who thus record Sebastián Méndez’s first win as a manager. If Godoy Cruz (at home to Tigre) or Argentinos Juniors (at home to Colón) win their matches on Sunday, Independiente will be knocked off top spot. The kick off times for Sunday and Monday’s matches are right here, as are the goals from the three games played on Saturday.
All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.
