Monday night saw the last match of the eleventh round of the 2011 Torneo Clausura, and after the sides around them in Argentina’s relegation dogfight had for the most part dropped points over the weekend, Olimpo de Bahía Blanca did them all a small favour by only managing a draw away to Lanús. The goals from that match can be viewed right here, along with all the scores and scorers from a weekend which saw only one home win in ten matches in Argentina’s top flight.
