Torneo Apertura 2010: Boca finally win, and all the round 4 scores and scorers

Lucas Viatri pays tribute to the watching Juan Román Riquelme in celebrating his goal for Boca

Boca Juniors’ Apertura is going so poorly that it was almost inevitable. They’ve finally won a match, and the result is that their bitterest rivals River Plate remain top of the table, Boca having beaten previous joint-leaders Vélez Sarsfield 2-1 in La Bombonera. Elsewhere on Sunday, Olimpo got a narrow win over Racing in Bahía Blanca, Independiente lost at home to Arsenal de Sarandí thanks in part to an extraordinary goal for the visitors from Gonzalo Choy González, and River’s new striker Mariano Pavone came off the bench for his debut but couldn’t make the difference as the leaders drew 0-0 away to the champions, Argentinos Juniors, after a poor performance. You can watch all Sunday’s goals, and see the heroes and villains of the round, right here.

Estudiantes de La Plata vs Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata still to be played, on the 29th September

Luis Zubeldía, the Lanús manager, was the first victim of a new AFA directive which, for some reason, states that managers arriving back to their bench late for the second half should be red-carded. Zubeldía was two minutes late back for the second half of the clásico del sur, and for that he’ll have to serve a mandatory five match ban. Blimey.

Independiente 1 – 2 Arsenal

Argentinos Juniors 0 – 0 River Plate

Boca Juniors 2 – 1 Vélez Sarsfield

Club Olimpo 1 – 0 Racing Club
