There were only two goals in Friday’s matches in the Torneo Clausura, both of which went to the home sides. Vélez vs Tigre was a deeply boring affair in which the one small amusement to be found was the Vélez fan a few rows behind me who felt the need, approximately every three minutes, to inform Tigre boss Ricardo Caruso Lombardi that his mother doesn’t have a very good reputation. Later on, Godoy Cruz beat Chacarita Juniors by a single goal to confirm the visitors’ relegation and leave the mendocinos temporarily back atop the league after last week’s loss at River. Watch both goals right here.
I was hoping Tigre would get a late and undeserved winner, but eventually it was Vélez who managed that, Rolando Zárate heading home with what proved to be the third from last touch of the match. I got a photo of that moment as well, but it’ll take a bit of editing before it’s anywhere near good enough to be uploaded.
Vélez Sarsfield 1 – 0 Tigre
Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba 1 – 0 Chacarita Juniors
