Clausura 2012: Boca beat Estudiantes to go top, Newell’s and Vélez are right behind (video)

The eighth round of the 2012 Torneo Clausura came to an end on Sunday night with Estudiantes de La Plata’s unbeaten record left in tatters by defending champions Boca Juniors. Santiago Silva finally opened his account for Boca before the Pablos, Ledesma and Mouche, added their own contributions to a 3-0 win in La Plata. Earlier, Vélez Sarsfield had beaten San Lorenzo 2-0, effectively ending Leonardo Madelón’s time in charge of the Bajo Flores outfit, and Newell’s had briefly gone top with a 2-0 win over Racing. All those goals, as well as Arsenal de Sarandí’s 2-0 win away to All Boys and San Martín’s 2-2 draw with Colón, are right here, as are the scores and scorers from the weekend.
