Apertura ’07: round 6 fixtures

Midweek matches are very disorienting. No sooner have we recovered from the glut of goals in round 5, than round 6 arrives to dizzy us all again.

Apertura ’07: week 4 roundup

It's been quite a weekend whilst I've been away, with 25 goals, a shock win for one of the newly promoted sides, Independiente maintaining their 100% start to the season, a late penalty at La Bombonera and another good away win for Banfield.

Not so simple after all

Boca's pre-season didn't continue as smoothly as they'd surely expected on Sunday, as they lost 3-1 to Mexican side Cruz Azul in the final of the friendly Copa Panamericana, in Phoenix, Arizona. Having taken the lead through Mauro Boselli, they were clawed back by a fantastic free kick from Israel López right at the end... Continue Reading →
