Boca Juniors became the third team in the history of the short championships to go unbeaten through a campaign on Sunday, when a Darío Cvitanich header gave them a 1-0 win at home to All Boys in their final Apertura match. They’re now 29 league games unbeaten. Elsewhere on Sunday, Estudiantes de La Plata won 2-0 at home to Unión de Santa Fe, and there were two more 1-0 wins for home sides in the Primera; Argentinos Juniors beat Olimpo and Belgrano de Córdoba beat Arsenal de Sarandí. In Nacional B, River Plate were in on the fun as well, beating Patronato, of Paraná 1-0 to end 2011 second, two points behind first-placed Instituto de Córdoba. The goals from all those games are right here.
Argentinos Juniors 1 – 0 Olimpo
Belgrano 1 – 0 Arsenal
Estudiantes 2 – 0 Unión
