Racing played their second clásico in a week on Saturday afternoon, and fell behind away to San Lorenzo before a double strike from a Colombian saved the day and gave La Academia a 2-1 win. It wasn’t Giovanni Moreno, of course, but new boy Teófilo Gutiérrez who got the two goals, which he then dedicated to Gio (and his own family, and God). Lanús had earlier overcome Quilmes 2-1 in El Sur, with two more goals from Diego Valeri. Boca Juniors manager Julio César Falcioni’s decision not to include Juan Román Riquelme in the matchday squad will surely be criticised, meanwhile, after Boca failed to break down an uninspiring All Boys team at La Bombonera, drawing 0-0. All the highlights are right here.
Lanús 2 – 1 Quilmes Atlético Club & San Lorenzo de Almagro 1 – 2 Racing Club
Boca Juniors 0 – 0 All Boys; Nicolás Colazo’s disallowed goal
