Saturday saw the continuation of the first round of matches in this year’s Torneo Clausura, with San Martín de San Juan claiming a 1-0 win over Independiente and the day’s other two games finishing in draws. Estudiantes drew 1-1 with Newell’s Old Boys in La Plata in a match which showed its lack in quality after Seba Verón was substituted in the second half, and Belgrano and All Boys battled to an unmemorable 0-0 draw in which Matías Giménez, Belgrano’s summer signing from Boca Juniors, made his debut off the bench – he’s been signed to replace Franco Vázquez, now of Palermo. The goals? You can see them here.
Estudiantes 1 – 1 Newell’s Old Boys
San Martín 1 – 0 Independiente
