Torneo Inicial 2012: champions Arsenal start with a win & Vélez thrash Argentinos (videos)

Friday night brought the start of the 2012-13 season in Argentine football, with champions Arsenal de Sarandí kicking things off against Unión and claiming a 1-0 win thanks to a goalkeeping howler from Alejandro Limia (who later saved a penalty). Afterwards, Vélez Sarsfield hosted Argentinos Juniors, beating them 3-0 with two headed goals from centre back Sebastián Domínguez and a second half finish from Lucas Pratto. You can see them all right here.

  1. A touch of a howler, but the wind was really blowing on that Arsenal goal.
