Arsenal hosted Independiente in Sarandí on Monday night in the final match of the fourth round of the 2011 Torneo Clausura, and the result, yet again, was a loss for the Avellaneda giants. Independiente are now closing in on a full short championship without a win, and are already being drawn into a relegation battle. Luciano Leguizamón’s goal, which made it 3-0 to Arsenal, means he’s overtaken José Luis Calderón as Arsenal’s all-time top scorer in the top flight. You can watch the goals here, as well as seeing all the scores and goalscorers from the round now finished.
