Saturday and Sunday Superliga highlights: River lose again, Boca win a wide-open game to maintain their lead

The seventeenth round of Superliga action continued over the weekend, with goals in largely short supply. Indeed, the scorelines on Saturday and Sunday were low, with one exception. Lanús and Rosario Central drew 1-1, the two goals coming just two minutes apart; Vélez Sarsfield were poor but River Plate were even worse as Gabriel Heinze’s men claimed a 1-0 win in Liniers. On Sunday, Independiente and Banfield met in a clash of two sides who suffered continental disappointment in midweek, and Martín Benítez got some measure of redemption for the saved penalty which saw the Recopa Sudamericana go to Grêmio on Wednesday night, scoring a cracker for the only goal of the game as Independiente won 1-0. The clásico in Santa Fe saw honours even between Unión and Colón … and there was Boca Juniors v San Martín de San Juan, which looked like being a thrashing early on, swung back towards the visitors as it dragged on, and then ended with a comfortable win as the league leaders ran out 4-2 winners. All these goals and more are here.
