Tuesday evening was the first time in over three years that River Plate have beaten Boca Juniors in a competitive match, a result which doesn’t do anything for them in the relegation struggle, but does lift them to eighth in the Torneo Apertura table. On Wednesday, Claudio Borghi’s exit from the Boca manager’s seat will be made official by club president Jorge Ameal, El Bichi having offered his resignation after the match. Elsewhere of course, the round included Vélez drawing level with Estudiantes at the top of the league, a first win for Quilmes and a first draw for Olimpo. All the scores and scorers are right here.
