Racing edge Vélez to win summer tournament (VIDEO)


A summer friendly between two reserve line-ups on the evening that Juan Román Riquelme (more on that shortly) announced his retirement went slightly under the radar. However, Racing Club celebrated a 1-0 victory over Vélez to lift the Copa Ciudad de Mar del Plata. A tight match was decided by Pablo Alvarado’s first half header but both sides now look forward to more important matters. Vélez face Boca Juniors on Wednesday night for a place in the Copa Libertadores, while Racing have the summer clásico de Avelleneda to prepare for next weekend.
