Apertura 2010 15th Round : Two above, four to go

Two points is the difference that Estudiantes took over Velez.
The leader won a very easy game at home 2-0 vs Huracan on Saturday, and put some pressure on Velez who could only get a draw 0-0 @ Gimnasia on Sunday and now watches Estudiantes from behind with four games left.

The 15th round also left another solid performance by the surprising All Boys, who beat Newell's 2-0 and keeps climbing in the Averages table.
Except for Tigre, who lost 2-0 @ Lanus (new coach Gabriel Schurrer debuted for them) and the already mentioned Huracan, all the other teams fighting to get out of the promotion/relegation zone curiously were only able to draw : Olimpo 1-1 at home vs Argentinos Juniors, Quilmes 1-1 @ Racing, River 0-0 in a VERY boring derby @ San Lorenzo, and the scoreless draw of Gimnasia at home vs the until then leader Velez.

Boca showed they are alive by getting a deserved 2-1 win vs Arsenal, and the best thing for them is that a young player, Sergio Araujo, made his debut and not only scored a goal but he also showed some interesting skills. Look forward to see him playing in Europe sooner than later.

One of the few highlights of the weekend was Godoy Cruz win 2-1 vs Banfield. With this 3 points, the Mendoza team is only one step away from playing their first international tournament (Copa Libertadores 2011) and they definitely deserve it because they've been one of the best teams this year and one of the few that always tried to play offensive football and is enjoyable to watch.

The next round will be spread over 5 days (!) because of a music show at Veles stadium that forces them to play on Tuesday.
