Saturday’s matches in the 2011 Torneo Clausura saw a surprise win for All Boys away to Vélez Sarsfield which gives the Floresta outfit – impressive at home during the Apertura but less so on their travels – another big scalp for the season. Also in action were Racing and Boca Juniors, in the year’s first clásico, and although Racing had more of the play Boca ground out a 1-0 win in El Cilindro. There was a 2-1 win for Newell’s Old Boys at home to Lanús, and a 0-0 draw between Argentinos Juniors and Independiente. All the highlights are here.
Argentinos Juniors 0 – 0 Independiente
Newell’s Old Boys 2 – 1 Lanús
Vélez Sarsfield 1 – 2 All Boys
Racing Club 0 – 1 Boca Juniors
