Clausura 2012: round 16 fixtures

The sixteenth round of the Torneo Apertura is upon us, with San Martín taking on Olimpo in the weekend’s first match (if Olimpo don’t win, they’ll be relegated). Tomorrow, title challengers All Boys (those are four words I never thought I’d write) travel to Lanús, Rafaela host Tigre – who’ll climb out of all relegation trouble for the first time this season if they win – Newell’s Old Boys visit San Lorenzo, Arsenal de Sarandí are away to Estudiantes de La Plata, and leaders Boca Juniors host Godoy Cruz. All the kick off times and referees are right here.

All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.

    Moreno scores the winner for Racing, wow…

    The jinx of Hand Of Pod continues against Tigre. Give them praise and credit and somehow everything bad happens. Olimpo blow a 2 goal lead vs San Martin and lose, and Newell’s do the same.
