There were no matches on Friday evening this week, but the sixth round of the 2011 Torneo Clausura sees afternoon (rather than early evening) kick offs return now that the worst of the Argentine summer is over. Quilmes and Independiente, two relegation strugglers, get us started at 2pm today. Later on River Plate will look to quickly bounce back to winning ways away to Arsenal de Sarandí. Sunday sees two massive games – Vélez vs San Lorenzo and Racing vs Estudiantes – and on Monday Banfield and Huracán close out the round in El Sur. All the kick off times and referees are right here, and don’t forget to keep an eye on my Twitter for legal live links to the matches.
