Friday night saw the first match in the eleventh round of Torneo Clausura 2012 fixtures, and Tigre beat Olimpo 1-0 in a bottom-of-the-relegation-table clash thanks to a goal from Martín Galmarini that was a full yard offside. It’s a huge win for Tigre in the relegation table, who now move to within a point of San Lorenzo in those standings. Later this weekend, Vélez take on Lanús, and two new managers have their league debuts: Racing boss Luis Zubeldía will watch his side take on San Martín de San Juan, and Omar Asad will be on the bench for Godoy Cruz, who host Independiente. All the kick off times – and that Galmarini goal for Tigre – are right here.
All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.
