Argentinos Jrs 1 - Tigre 2
Copa Sudamericana, 2nd stage, 1st leg

Great win for Tigre as they put one step in the next round of Copa Sudamericana with that 2-1 at Argentinos Juniors who completed their 3rd defeat in a row.
They definitely didn't deserve to win it because with very little Argentinos had been better, but the hosts showed once again a very weak defense and every time they tried to put a lot of people in attack they ended very open in the back leaving a lot of space for Tigre's counter attacks.
Boring 1st half, very entertaining 2nd one and the goal in stoppage time put Tigre obviously in the better position to advance. Second leg will be at Tigre in 2 weeks and Argentinos will have to win plus score at least 2 away goals.


Round 3 of Inicial 2012 will start tonight as we will find out which teams could be championship material, something very difficult to imagine after two extremely balanced and very even rounds.

The round will start with the only leader Colon hosting another undefeated team, Belgrano, who after a surprising win at River in the first game of the season was only able to take a draw against a San Lorenzo team that played for 40 minutes with 10 men.

The must watch game of the round is of course the Avellaneda derby, Racing - Independiente, the match between neighbors that is one of the biggest "clasicos" of this league.
You can read a little more about rivalries in this short article I wrote a couple of years ago:
