Clausura 2011 Round 5 - Super Racing

* Clausura now has only 1 leader and it's Racing, who won their 3rd consecutive game, a great 4-0 at Colon. They have scored 10 goals in this last 3 rounds and they are looking like a championship candidate.

* The last champion, Estudiantes, lost again at home, 0-1 vs Godoy Cruz and this was their 2nd consecutive defeat at home, something that didn't happen since 2002 !
They looked tired and fans are not happy with new coach Eduardo Berizzo. End of an era for Estudiantes ?

* The big derby of the round was won by San Lorenzo, 1-0 in a very poor game against Boca (yeah! the H2H is now 69-60 on San Lorenzo favour) who can't find the bottom of this crisis and it's unknown how long will coach Julio Cesar Falcioni last in his job.

* Velez finally won their first game of Clausura, thanks to a huge mistake by young River goalkeeper Leandro Chichizola, and so did Independiente, crushing Newell's with a 4-0 that brought some peace after a very tough start of 2011.

This were the complete results of the 5th round :

Olimpo de Bahía Blanca 1 – 0 All Boys
Tigre 1 – 2 Banfield
Lanús 0 – 0 Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata
Argentinos Juniors 1 – 0 Arsenal F.C.
