It was a Sunday of classic football in Argentina – and not only in the clásicos. Those were both good matches, with San Lorenzo brushing aside Huracán 3-0 after an awkward first half, and the two rosarino clubs drawing 1-1 in El Gigante Del Arroyito, both in goals and red cards. In La Plata, Boca lost 1-0 to a golazo from Colombian Marco Pérez, one of the revelations of the torneo with eight goals, and an epic of a match in Avellaneda witnessed a Biblical deluge, lamentable scenes in the stands and an unexpected turnaround as Racing, 1-0 down at half-time, smashed Vélez in the second half to run out 3-1 winners. All the goals – and extensive highlights of the Central vs Newell’s match – are right here. Enjoy them.
San Lorenzo de Almagro 3 – 0 Huracán
Rosario Central 1 – 1 Newell’s Old Boys
Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata 1 – 0 Boca Juniors
Racing Club 3 – 1 Vélez Sársfield
As well as the Primera action, one promotion was also secured on Sunday. Barracas Central beat Excursionistas in the final of the Primera C, and thus secured their place in Primera B Metropolitana (the third division, to the layman) for next season.
