Clausura 2012 - Round 2 Friday - It's raining goals !!!

What a beautiful night full of goals.
In 2 games we had 9 goals, more than half of what we had in the whole 1st round (15) !!!

Olimpo 4 - Belgrano 1

Fair win for Olimpo, without a doubt. They started the game better and when Belgrano was starting to balance it, they scored the 1st goal (hand ball that the referee didn't see).
The last minutes of the 1st half were crazy: red card for Belgrano (another referee mistake IMO) and 1 minute later a penalty for them (another strange decision) !!
But the 2nd half was all for Olimpo who knew how to take advantage of having one more men on the field and even if the 3 goals difference was probably too much, it was a deserved 3 points for them.

Banfield 0 - Velez 4

Velez once again confirmed they are candidates to take this league, in case anyone thought they might not be really focused.
And that thing I said about giving some credit to Banfield...well, forget it. They fought and played as equals for 15-20 minutes but once Velez got the ball and scored the 1-0...poor Banfield.
If the visitors hadn't slow down after the 3rd goal, it could have been a massacre.


Round 2 will continue today with 3 matches that honestly don't look like interesting games to watch (2nd division games today look really fun to watch actually, especially Gimnasia-Rosario Central), but the same thing I thought about Olimpo-Belgrano, so maybe he have a couple of surprises...

17.00-- Newell´s Old Boys-Argentinos Juniors
19.10-- Arsenal F.C.-Atlético Rafaela
21.10-- All Boys-Colón de Santa Fe

(all times GMT-3)
