The Superliga season rolls on and with Arsenal de Sarandí surprisingly leading the pack, Golazo looks back over a fresh round of fixtures.
With twelve matches to choose from here are the eleven that impressed from round three, along with our Player of the round and pick of the goals. All stats come courtesy of WhoScored.com, who also provide previews and live in-play match stats for all Superliga matches. Feel free to disagree and leave a comment suggesting who you thought should have made it…
Alexis Martin Arias || Gimnasia
Despite suffering a 2-1 defeat away to Colón and with Gimnasia staring at relegation already, Alexis Martín Arias produced an excellent performance in goal. Six saves looked to have earned El Lobo a point until Wilson Morelo’s last ditch winner.
Facundo Nadalín || Newell’s Old Boys
Facundo Nadalín’s goal might not have been the most sweetly struck volley but the 22-year-old was excellent as Newell’s Old Boys chalked up victory over Unión.
Bruno Bianchi || Atlético Tucumán
It may even have been intended as a cross but Bruno Bianchi found the top corner in the 87th minute to give Atlético Tucumán victory over Godoy Cruz. Excellent passing the ball out from the back the 30 year-old made a number of clearances to ensure the vital clean sheet.
Junior Alonso || Boca Juniors
A glaring error in the week that eventually saw Boca go out of the Copa Argentina to Almagro, Junior Alonso responded well with an assured display in the win over Aldosivi. Three tackles (100%) and three interceptions and a header that hit the woodwork.
Bruno Pittón || San Lorenzo
After a poor start San Lorenzo came back to take a draw against Rosario Central and should have probably taken all three points. Bruno Pittón scored his second since joining the club and already looks like a shrewd addition in to El Ciclón.
Exequiel Palacios || River Plate
Back in the Argentina squad and back on form at just the right time for River. A wonderful pass released Rafael Santos Borré for the equaliser that sparked the flood of goals and it was a bustling midfield display by the youngster.
Nicolás Giménez || Arsenal
Arsenal continue to surprise and Nicolás Giménez has already proved a superb signing. Six successful dribbles, an assist and three tackles (100%) it was an all-round midfield display that only lacked a goal – the post denying the 23-year-old.
Gastón Alvárez Suárez || Arsenal
A goal and an assist for Gastón Alvárez Suárez, the midfielder was outstanding in Arsenal’s win over Defensa y Justicia. Six key passes and two dribbles, the 26-year-old was at the heart of everything.
Player of the week
Matías Suárez || River Plate
Operating in those little spaces just behind the striker, Matías Suárez has proved the signing that most imagined he would be for River. The 31-year-old added another goal and an assist in the thrashing of Racing but caused problems for La Academia all evening.
Wilson Morelo || Colón
Wilson Morelo hasn’t exactly set the world alight since joining Colón but the Colombian’s two goals against Gimnasia on Monday earned his side victory.
Rafael Santos Borré || River Plate
A timely return to form for Rafael Santos Borré, River Plate supporters will be thrilled to see the Colombian score twice ahead of the business end of the Copa Libertadores.
Goal of the week
Enzo Kalinski – ESTUDIANTES v Independiente
Enzo hizo uno de Francescoli. Y con matices de Rivaldo. No hay discusión. Esta joya de Kalinski para decorar el 3-0 de Estudiantes sobre Independiente es el #GolDeLaFecha y candidato a figurar entre los mejores del año. 👏👏👏⚽️⚽️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/1DR3aflKFl
