Clausura 2012 - Round 11 - Boca + Newell's

Arsenal 1 - Newell's 1

Definitely an expected result but in a game that was better thank I thought it would be, to close the round and add another leader to Clausura because Newell's now has 21 points like Boca.
Arsenal scored early in the 2nd half but Newell's got a fast equalizer when it looked like things could get tough for them. Both had big chances missed but as minutes passed and the end of the match started to get closer, they realized that the draw was not that bad and everybody was happy with it after all.


8 rounds, about 40% of the league still to be played and we have 2 leaders (Boca, Newell's 21 pts) and 4 teams within 2 points (Velez, Tigre have 20pts and Arsenal and All Boys have 19).
With Boca and Velez focused (at least for now) in Copa Libertadores and Tigre and All Boys in avoiding relegation, the league couldn't be more open !!

This week we will have the last 3 Round of 16 games of Copa Libertadores...well, at least we are supposed to have them.
All games should be played on Wednesday Boca-Olimpo at 22.00 (at the province of Catamarca), Rosario Central - Belgrano was confirmed today to be played at 20.00 (at San Juan).

The remaining game is San Lorenzo - Barracas Central (Primera B team, 3rd division), that was going to be played at Lanus at 19.00, but for the 1000th time it seems like they have to change the venue (it was going to be played at Chaco last week, then in Buenos Aires and 3 different stadiums were mentioned) so at this moment nothing is confirmed.


Round 12 will start next Friday and will feature some interesting games, like the big "Cuyo derby" between San Martin and Godoy Cruz, the leader Boca will play at home against the uprising Colon and the other leader, Newell's hosts 3rd placed All Boys.
