The second round of matches in the 2011 Torneo Apertura ended on Wednesday night in Avellaneda, where Colombian striker Teo Gutiérrez scored twice, missed a penalty and a couple of other decent chances, and helped Racing to a 3-0 win over Godoy Cruz, one of the title favourites. That match came after two 1-1 draws earlier in the day; Belgrano’s first home game of the season, against Olimpo, and Colón vs All Boys, during which Albo forward Mauro Matos scored one goal for each team. All the goals from the day’s three matches are right here, as well as the scores, scorers and red cards from the whole of this midweek round.
