Estudiantes de La Plata have won the 2010 Torneo Apertura after a 2-0 win at ‘home’ in Quilmes over Arsenal de Sarandí. An edgy and at times frustrating match was settled late on by goals from Gastón Fernández and Rodrigo López, to leave Vélez Sarsfield trailing two points behind in spite of their own impressive 2-0 away win over Racing. There’ll be goal videos available later on, after all of Sunday’s matches have been concluded, but for now HEGS offers muchas felicidades to Estudiantes and their fans.
