No sooner has the seventh round finished, than the eighth is upon us in this 2011 Torneo Apertura. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will see between them another ten top flight matches in Argentina, with Boca Juniors looking to consolidate their new status as out-and-out league leaders when they host Estudiantes de La Plata on Thursday night. Of the chasing pack, Atlético Rafaela host Independiente tomorrow, Lanús travel to Córdoba to take on Belgrano, and Colón are at home to San Martín de San Juan tonight.
