Clausura 2012 - Round 3 - Saturday / San Lorenzo wins !!!


You know it's always a good day for me when San Lorenzo wins (and these days have been so scarce lately...) but it has to be even better if all games go pretty much as expected (and if you are a customer of Argentina Football Previews, you definitely know this ;) ).

Argentinos Jrs 0 - San Lorenzo 1

The 1st half of Argentinos - San Lorenzo was simply awful, and it looked like only a mistake could change the 0-0.
It was not a mistake, but a good counter attack early in the 2nd half, and this 0-1 by young striker Nahuel Benitez gave the visitors big confidence to go for a 2nd goal.
Argentinos had a couple of chances to get a draw, but San Lorenzo missed at least 3 huge chances for a 0-2.
It was 0-1 in the end and some air for San Lorenzo who climbs one place in the Averages table, to the 17th spot but still in promotion playoffs zone.


Estudiantes 2 - Independiente 0

Estudiantes and Independiente played to see who was the most disappointing team and Independiente won that title, because Estudiantes took the game.
Without playing a brilliant game the host was definitely better than Independiente, who has 0 everywhere: 0 points, 0 goals scored...and they are close to have 0 coaches because after the game there were rumors that Ramon Diaz might resign. Some light at the end of the tunnel for Estudiantes who won their first game of Clausura and still have time to play better.


Colon 3 - Olimpo 1

Good win for Colon on coach Roberto Sensini's debut. Not a great performance but they were better than Olimpo for sure and finally scored their first goals of the semester.
Olimpo is at the bottom of the Averages table and it's very difficult to imagine how they will manage to get out of there before the season is over.
