The second round of matches in the 2012 Torneo Clausura is already underway, and there were two high-scoring matches on Friday night to get the round started. Olimpo beat Belgrano 4-1 after going in level at the break, before championship contenders Vélez Sarsfield recorded their first win of the year with a thumping 4-0 win away to whipping boys Banfield. You can see all nine goals right here.
Olimpo 4 – 1 Belgrano
Banfield 0 – 4 Vélez
