Clausura 2012 - Round 10 starts TONIGHT !

Do you know you can get full, deep analysis previews + tips for every game of Clausura ?
Send me an email NOW to for service fee, details and some samples of previous rounds !!

It was a good week for Argentinean teams in Copa Libertadores as Boca and Velez won 2-0 @ Fluminense and 2-0 @ Guadalajara respectively to advance to the Round of 16 when they still have to play the last group game.
Lanus lost 0-3 @ Flamengo but they had already claimed the group's 1st place last week, while Arsenal (they also won, 1-0 @ Venezuela vs Zamora) and Godoy Cruz are eliminated but they also have to play their last group game last week.

Check back on Monday as I will explain how are Round of 16 series determined (no, it's not a draw like in UEFA CL or EL)


Copa Argentina also saw some action this week and we have the first 3 teams qualified to the Quarterfinals: River (beat Quilmes 2-1), Tigre (vs Argentinos Jrs 1-0) and 2nd division side Atletico Tucuman (0-0, 4-3 on the penalties shootout).

This means that we have only 6 first division teams in the competition !
Only Tigre in QF, while Olimpo, Boca (they play between them), San Lorenzo, Racing and Belgrano will try to advance from the Round of 16.


Round 10 of Clausura starts tonight !
Estudiantes will try to recover from two consecutive defeats, playing at home against the recently in-form Colon.

The rest of the weekend will have some interesting games like the huge Avellaneda derby between Independiente and Racing, a relegation final in Olimpo - All Boys and the leader Boca visits the very needed Tigre.
