Goals galore as Central down Newell’s in the clásico, Boca draw away to Godoy Cruz & more (video)

Saturday's and Sunday's matches in the Torneo Inicial brought no fewer than twenty goals in seven matches - in fact, twenty goals in six matches, since River Plate v Belgrano ended goalless thanks largely to the incredible profligacy, yet again, of River's forwards.

Clausura 2010: Round 15 Sunday goals

It was a Sunday of classic football in Argentina - and not only in the clásicos.

Elsewhere there are clásicos in the Nuevo Gasómetro (whose predecessor, the... Continue Reading →

Newell’s get revenge

Newell's Old Boys got revenge on Rosario Central in the Rosario derby on Saturday, beating them 1-0 to get even after they lost the Apertura clásico by the same scoreline in their own stadium.
