Monday evening saw the sixth round of the 2011 Torneo Clausura come to an end with a rare win for Gimnasia La Plata, at home to Tigre – it’s only the fifth match they’ve won since the start of the Apertura. Later on, Banfield were 2-0 up against Huracán but their visitors eventually pulled it back to 2-2 minutes from the end of the match to leave El Taladro disappointed. All those goals, as well as the weekend’s heroes and villains from all the top flight matches, are right here.

Agremiados managed to reverse the double yellow expulsion into a single yellow for Tigre’s Galmarini (first successful appeal in 11 years!), but I don’t understand why he is still unable to play vs godoy cruz next Sat?
Because they can rescind a red card but not a yellow – and he’s now on five yellows for the season.
thanks for that, none of the articles i read at the time made any mention of the 5th card rule, nor mentioned had he been carrying the 4th one when the game started. That’s a graphic that only ever comes up on tv, it’s never in print anywhere for some reason until after the fact! Doesn’t AFA publish a list for newspapers to include in their previas?
I saw that ref lose control of a match earlier this season. I don’t remember which one. Is this his first season in top flight Argentine football ? I don’t recall seeing him before. He looks out of his league.
Delfino is one of the younger refs, he started primera division matches this past winter, after a pair of years of double duty Primera B Metropolitana and Nacional B
