Clausura 2012 - Round 3 / The Relegation Battle

Two key games for the relegation battle opened round 3 of Clausura.

Belgrano 1 - Union 0

Belgrano was better than a harmless Union that barely had any scoring chances through the game. Belgrano wasn't a lot better but scored a nice long shot goal and took 3 important points while Union could end this round in the 18th place of the Averages table if San Lorenzo wins today.

Atletico Rafaela 0 - All Boys 1

The 2nd game was dull and really boring, nothing new for All Boys but a surprise for a team like Rafaela that can play good football.
The match was definitely bound to be a 0-0 because except for an almost own goal by an All Boys defender that hit the post with 15 minutes left, the 2nd half was even more boring than the 1st one, and in the last minutes both teams looked happy enough with the draw, especially All Boys knowing that Union had lost in the 1st game of the day.
3rd extra time minute of 3 added, the referee was ready to finish it...but an All Boys player (playmaker Matias Perez Garcia who came from the bench) stole the ball from a Rafaela defender that was ready to shoot it as far as possible, and with a long shot from outside the box gave his team 3 very important points.
Lucky run for All Boys with 2 consecutive wins in games that they almost don't create any good offensive football.

Round 3 will continue today with 3 games (all times local, GMT-3):

19.10 / Colon - Olimpo
19.10 / Estudiantes - Independiente
21.30 / Argentinos Jrs - San Lorenzo
