Godoy Cruz claimed what manager Omar Asad said was a ‘moral championship’ with a 2-1 win over Arsenal in Sarandí to round off a great half of the year for the mendocinos on Friday afternoon. After that, San Lorenzo beat Newell’s 2-1 in a match far more notable for its second half than its first, and Banfield reminded us why they won the title just six months ago with a 3-0 crushing of a Boca Juniors side who, if nothing else, showed why they’ll need some major re-working if the injured Juan Román Riquelme really does leave. At least Martín Palermo came through unscathed though – Argentina fans, rejoice. Watch all the goals right here.
Arsenal Fútbol Club 1 – 2 Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba
San Lorenzo de Almagro 2 – 1 Newell’s Old Boys
Banfield 3 – 0 Boca Juniors
You can follow the Clausura and the Argentine sides in the 2010 Copa Libertadores via HEGS on Twitter (including updates during and between matches and similar stories that might not go up on the site until later). If you’ve not signed up yet you can do so here.
I believe Godoy Cruz has made a bit of obscure history, best point result ever by a non-affiliated club in torneos cortos.
Talleres de Cordoba in Clausura 2004 had 35 points from 10w-5d-4l with a 30-19(+11) goal difference
Mike, I’m certainly not going to go to the trouble to check them all myself, although if I come across that you’re mistaken I’ll point you in the direction of alternative figures. Good spot either way!
