Torneo Apertura 2010: round 3 scores and scorers

River Plate 3 - 2 Independiente
River fans celebrate a third straight win

On Sunday, River Plate continued their excellent form at the start of the season – I was there – whilst Boca Juniors lost 2-0 to All Boys, the promoted side claiming their first won of the torneo. Arsenal beat Huracán 2-0 as well, and the day’s first game, Gimnasia vs Colón, was a dull 0-0. You can watch all the goals from Sunday’s matches, as well as see the heroes and villains from the weekend, right here as ever.

  1. The worst performance yet by Boca. You can see what Borghi wants them to do when attacking, but they just cannot execute the plan. In addition, they still have very little speed, which can make up for other deficits at times. No Palacio, no Datolo. Palermo is less and less mobile. They also remain woeful in the air in front of their own goal. This has been a problem dating back to the days of Carranta. Bring back Palacio and Cata Diaz !!:(

    1. Got to agree, although it was an even game before the penalty, with Canete and Marin both looking bright. After the penalty, however, Boca just seemed to fall apart. It’s just baffling, as you’d have thought you would see improvements on last year, what with the arrivals of Borghi, Caruzzo, Insaurralde etc. All these guys had top seasons last year, but the curse that hangs over Boca (or more like the pressure that goes with wearing the shirt) is hurting them.

      And Palermo…the guy just needs to be put out of his misery…

  2. And, if it wasn’t bad enough that Boca stinks, River is looking semi formidable. My River supporting maid gave me no end of grief today, the toothless dude who delivers my ordered out lunch in his River camisa gave me s**t, and Sam sent me a demeaning text yesterday. Whaddaya !!??
