Torneo Apertura 2011: round 15 scores and goal videos (and River Plate’s goals)

I’ve had a fun-packed weekend (okay, there was a bit of a hangover involved as well) and the fifteenth round of the Torneo Apertura only ended on Monday night. These two facts have combined to result in my not getting this post online before now, but it’s packed with goal videos. The weekend saw the big clash, Boca Juniors v Racing, end goalless, but Lanús’ loss to Arsenal on Monday night meant Boca are a bit closer to the title anyway. Estudiantes’ bottom-of-the-table match against Banfield was called off after 13 minutes when Estudiantes’ barra, who’d threatened trouble before the match, threw two firecrackers at visiting goalkeeper Christian Lucchetti. If it’s scores, scorers and goals you want, step this way.
