Apertura 2011: Boca top the table, Estudiantes beat Argentinos in a thriller & more (video)

Boca celebrate going top of the table

I’ve got all the videos from the weekend’s 2011 Torneo Apertura action for you at once today, due in part to laziness and in part to business over the weekend (round eight will be played in midweek, which has meant I’ve had to prepare my betting preview for the Hong Kong Jockey Club a few days earlier than normal, whilst the football’s been going on). At the end of the round, Boca Juniors are on their own at the top, having beaten Lanús 2-1 away. Estudiantes and Argentinos had been involved in a lot of dire matches prior to this weekend, so it was of course entirely inevitable that they would produce a seven goal thriller, with Estudiantes running out 4-3 winners in spite of a) going 2-0 down after half an hour and b) conceding an equaliser in the penultimate minute of normal time. There were plenty more goals besides, and you can see every single one of them here.
