River celebrate though they didn’t play, and the champions win

River Plate were the side who benefited most from Huracán’s 1-2 home defeat to Lanús on Monday evening, since it was a result which, for the first time in months, lifts River out of the relegation promoción (playoff) places. Later in the evening, Argentinos Juniors beat Colón at home by three goals to nil. On Tuesday night, Vélez Sarsfield play Tigre whilst myself, and the Dans Australian and English record the third episode of Hand Of Pod. You can see all Monday’s goals, though, right here.

Huracán 1 – 2 Lanús

Argentinos Juniors 3 – 0 Colón

  1. With a few more matches to go, and the entire Clausura still to be played, you have to feel that River Plate should be able to avoid the Promoció altogether. Surely another total meltdown is not likely? In 23 matches? (Please say it isn’t. Please.)

    1. Just being 6th and finally out of promotion is a “moral championship”* won, right?
      River has only recently figured out their purpose and ability, however now the problem is so have the other teams, well before river had their epiphany moment.
