Clausura 2012: Rafaela thrash Banfield, and in Nacional B River go joint top with a win (video)

Racing 0 - 0 Tigre

Racing's fans: considerably more impressive than their team

The first round of the 2012 Torneo Clausura continued apace on Sunday, with four more matches. In the first, Atlético de Rafaela beat a woeful Banfield 3-0 to creep closer to 30 points for the season, and later on there were three draws: Vélez and Godoy Cruz ended 1-1 in Liniers, whilst Racing v Tigre and Argentinos Juniors v Unión de Santa Fe both ended goalless. In Nacional B, River Plate took advantage of Instituto de Córdoba’s slip-up yesterday; they beat Chacarita Juniors 2-0 away (in La Plata), with an own goal and an absolute cracker from rising star Lucas Ocampos. All the goals are here.

Rafaela 3 – 0 Banfield

Vélez 1 – 1 Godoy Cruz

Nacional B 2011-12: Chacarita Juniors 0 – 2 River Plate

    What a golazo from Ocampos for RIver or maybe Cahcarita are really woeful (last place ain’t for nothing).
