The Superclásico dominated the headlines in Argentina this weekend but there were plenty of Argentinos in action over in Europe this weekend and many among the goals.
Boca Juniors versus River Plate wasn’t the only derby of significance this weekend and while there was nothing between the Copa Libertadores finalists, Manchester City were far superior to their city rivals.
David Silva had bundled City ahead early and the result rarely looked in doubt despite the home having to wait until the second half to add to their lead. Sergio Agüero may have changed his hair colour but the striker was as dangerous as ever and just after the restart, Agüero exchanged passes with Riyad Mahrez before unleashing an unstoppable finish past David de Gea.

The goal was Agüero’s 151st in 218 Premier League appearances, his 208th for City and his eighth against United, overtaking Eric Cantona and equalling Wayne Rooney as the Premier League leading goalscorer in the derby.
United pulled one back through a Anthony Martial penalty but a fine passing move finished by Ilkay Gundogan wrapped up the points and took City back to the top of the table.
A day earlier in the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur earned a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and Juan Foyth was the unlikely match winner.
The 20-year-old gave away two penalties on his league debut last week but redeemed himself to head in from close range and earn Spurs a vital three points.
