A Sunday which saw several of Argentina’s heavyweights in action produced some interesting results. Boca Juniors bounced back from their defeat earlier in the week to defeat Atletico Rafaela in La Bombonera, kickstarted by Juan Roman Riquelme’s indirect freekick and finished by a fine team move, Boca look to be improving. Later, River Plate dropped more points as they produced a goalless draw in Mendoza with Godoy Cruz. With Teo Gutierrez still not able to play River look woefully short up top and lack any real edge. Newell’s Old Boys and Belgrano were also unable to produce any goals when they met in Rosario mainly thanks to the performance of Belgrano keeper, Juan Olave. In the remaining game, Racing were comfortably beaten by Tigre perhaps edging Manager, Luis Zebeldia towards the exit door. Boca loanee, Sergio Araujo scored twice before Racing flop, Jose Sand rubbed salt into the wound. Rodrigo De Paul managed a consolation but the end could be nigh for Zubeldia. SEE ALL THE GOALS….
