Verón bids farewell and Estudiantes go top as Colón and Atletico fail to win making relegation even tighter (VIDEO)


A great win for Estudiantes on the day that club legend, Seba Verón played his last game in La Plata

The more meaningful matches in the title race might be later today but Estudiantes have ensured that they will be in the mix on the final day after a crushing 3-0 win over San Lorenzo in La Plata. Although San Lorenzo obviously had the Copa Libertadores on their minds, it was a fitting farewell to Juan Sebastián Verón as he retires at the end of the season. Another player calling time on his illustrious career was Gabriel Heinze, and he too did so with victory. Newell’s Old Boys swept already relegated, All Boys aside in Rosario with youngster Ezequiel Ponce netting twice. Tigre and Atletico Rafaela failed to clear up their relegation situation with a 1-1 draw in Santa Fe. Lucas Albertengo spectacularly gave Atletico the lead only for the talented, Matías Pérez García to score the simplest of equalisers. Colón joined Atletico for a potential relegation playoff after defeat in Liniers against Vélez Sarsfield. Two early goals by Mauro Zárate were decisive but it remains to be seen if the league’s top scorer will still be at Vélez next season. Finally, Racing Club welcomed Rosario Central to Avellaneda and although Mostaza Merlo may have gone in midweek, it was still dreadful. Another dreary goalless draw for the locals to endure. WATCH ALL THE GOALS….

Estudiantes  3 – 0  San Lorenzo

Newell’s Old Boys  4 – 2  All Boys

Atletico Rafaela  1 – 1  Tigre

Vélez Sarsfield  2 – 0  Colón

Racing Club  0 – 0  Rosario Central

    • Absolutely. The noises seem to be that he is once again ready to move on and I despite some rumours of Boca being interested I really do not see a move within Argentina. If Zárate leaves Vélez I think it will be another move to Europe. In truth, he is too good for the Primera here just unfortunately he is yet to show he is too good for the top clubs in Europe which he clearly thinks he is. Someone in Europe could get themselves a very good deal though.

      • Yeah, very true. He did show glimpses of promise while in England at Birmingham, and also in Italy with Lazio. I think if he found the right club, things could happen for him. Spain could be a good destination for him.
