Vélez go joint top, and Quilmes finally win!

'Ricky' Álvarez celebrates a great goal for Vélez

Quilmes won for the first time in the 2010 Torneo Apertura on Sunday, beating Godoy Cruz 2-1 in the only game of the day to go over two goals. Vélez Sarsfield went joint top of the league, on thirty points with Estudiantes de La Plata. They did so by beating Lanús 1-0 with a fantastic shot from Ricardo Álvarez. Elsewhere on Sunday Argentinos Juniors beat San Lorenzo deservedly 1-0, Independiente and Olimpo drew 1-1, and Racing continued an impressive campaign with a 2-0 win away to Newell’s Old Boys. Only the superclásico remains in this round, and there’s a preview of that presented by yours truly over on the first ever Hand Of Pod podcast now. As for Sunday’s goals? You can see them all right here.
