Torneo Apertura 2010: round 8 scores and scorers

River Plate 1 - 1 Quilmes
Mariano Pavone celebrates his first goal for River with his team-mates

River Plate were all set to go just one point off the lead of the Torneo Apertura on Sunday evening, until former Boca Juniors midfielder Miguel Caneo popped up to head home a poorly-defended free kick and earn Quilmes a 1-1 draw they would never have got had Rogelio Funes Mori been able to put the ball in the net at least once out of the seemingly endless chances he had. Sunday’s other matches were all also draws: Huracán and Godoy Cruz drew 1-1 as well, whilst Arsenal vs Newell’s Old Boys and Tigre vs Racing both finished goalless. You can watch the highlights, such as they are, right here.
