Chacarita Juniors promoted

If the AFA thought they had problems with crowd control in the top flight for the last few seasons, they can't have been happy bunnies on Monday. Chacarita Juniors, whose previous spells in Primera A have been most notable for very badly behaved crowds, most infamously (and tragically) when playing Boca Juniors, are back in...

Primera A(tlético)

Last season they were playing in the Torneo Argentino A, the third division section for clubs not affiliated to the AFA, but on Sunday Atlético Tucumán ensured their city will continue to have Primera División representation next season by thrashing relegation-threatened Talleres de Córdoba 4-1 to confirm the B Nacional title. Atlético's last appearance in... Continue Reading →

Tough at the top

On Saturday afternoon, Ferro Carril Oeste beat Chacarita Juniors 2-0 to leave things at the top of B Nacional more congested than ever, but later on was another meeting of title chasers, as Vélez Sársfield, top of Primera A, hosted Racing Club, who amazingly would have gone fifth with a win. Some thing never change,... Continue Reading →

Chacarita are on the up…

On Monday night Chacarita Juniors took one step closer to the horrific possibility of clashing once more with Boca Juniors next season after beating Unión de Santa Fe 4-2 in Ferro's stadium. Javier Toledo hit a hat-trick to move El Funebrero six points clear at the top of the Primera B Nacional table. With the... Continue Reading →

Hot on the heels

San Lorenzo lead the Apertura following Friday night's win over Colón in the Nuevo Gasómetro, but they've got some competition, and on Saturday Vélez Sársfield reminded them of that fact with a 2-1 victory at home to Rosario Central. El Fortín played well after an early scare, and now sit two points back on San... Continue Reading →

Ascenso roundup

There may have been no matches in Primera A the weekend just gone, but the lower divisions carried on as normal, unaffected by the performances (or otherwise) of the world's national teams. Now, then, seems as good a time as any to have a quick look at how the first month or so of lower... Continue Reading →

All the ups and downs

With the completion at the weekend of the Promociónes, the 2007-2008 season is now complete in Argentina. Racing, of course, are the most notable survivors of the relegations playoffs, but there have been shocks in other divisions with little-fancied All Boys winning the Primera B championship, and Nueva Chicago losing their playoff to fall down...

Safe at last

It's been a long and tortuous season for Racing, but on Sunday night, at last, their fans will finally be able to sleep sound in their beds, and when they wake up on Monday morning will be going into work or school with, if not pride, then at least a massive sense of relief. On... Continue Reading →

Belgrano 1 – 1 Racing

Following Gimnasia de Jujuy's away draw with Unión on Wednesday evening, Racing got one of their own in Córdoba against Belgrano to set up a return at El Cilindro on Sunday. In the first half, Facundo Sava was on his best form, scoring once but missing an absolute bucketload as Racing more or less shut... Continue Reading →
