Torneo Apertura 2010: round 2 Saturday goals

Racing players study the ball prior to a free kick

This didn’t go up last night because (not for the first time), Flash kept crashing on my computer, meaning I couldn’t navigate YouTube at all. But here it is now. Saturday’s matches saw Lanús and Newell’s draw, San Lorenzo and Godoy Cruz fight out a great game which ended 2-2 with Godoy keeper Nelson Ibáñez making a howler, and Tigre once again flatter to disappoint, losing 2-1 at home to Arsenal de Sarandí. Miguel Ángel Russo also made a bit of history; he became only the second Racing manager ever to win two consecutive matches against Boca Juniors in La Bombonera. You can watch all the goals from all those matches right here, as ever.

  1. Following a couple of replies the other day to my question about the size of the ‘small’ text for the weekend fixtures, I’ve fiddled around with the HTML on this post a bit, and you’ll notice the text at the bottom of this post, linking to the Twitter pages and to Nacho’s Flickr profile, is a size larger than normal. Hope everyone finds this more legible, because it’ll be the size used for that notice and for the fixtures/scores posts from now on – please say if it’s a problem.

    The reason I use a smaller size for the scores and scorers posts is basically to do with fitting the information mostly within the width of the post and without the post looking really long in your browser window.

  2. Two matches in, and for all the personnel changes Boca looks exactly like the team from a few months ago. Spotty defensive play (Clemente !), and not enough chances created by the attack. A Bostero can only hope that the defense comes together with time, and that, yes, Roman might make a difference upon his return. Bah. Humbug.
