Argentina, Apertura 2007, 5th Week

On the 5th week the games were played on Tuesday and Wednesday. The overall Apertura's tendency shows that there are no clear outsiders as of now. Everybody knows playing and winning.

Newell´s Old Boys - Vélez Sarsfield 2:0
Da Silva, Seri
Velez lost again, having proved that his previous win didn't mean much. Newell's wins look very intriguing, because no one knows the players of the team.

Gimnasia La Plata - San Martín San Juan 2:0
Leguizamon, Salvatierra
San Martin took a break after beating River and lost to El Lobo. Gimnasia shows clear signs of recovering under Falcioni's guidance.

Banfield - Lanús 1:2
Lucchetti (pen.) - Sand (2)
Two very good teams produced some great football. Sand has been turning into one of Apertura's main scorers.

Colón de Santa Fe - Rosario Central 2:0
Gandin, Romero
Colon won again, Gandin scored again. Let's see what they will be capable of against the grandees. Central seems to have too young players for showing something serious in this Apertura.

Olimpo Bahía Blanca - Tigre 0:1
The first win of Tigre, especially valuable because it's an away win.

San Lorenzo - Racing Club 4:3
Silvera (2), Romeo (2) - Yacob, Avalos, Pellerano
Absolutely crazy match, in which San Lorenzo managed to score four goals after losing 0:3. Racing keeps on being the most unlucky team, while San Lorenzo gradually loses stability too.

Gimnasia de Jujuy - Arsenal de Sarandí 1:0
Jujenos won too, having defeated Arsenal, which slowly turns into a loser.

River Plate - Estudiantes La Plata 4:2
Belluschi, Ruben, Sanchez, Falcao - Benitez, Salgueiro
Finally Millionarios managed to triumph, although against a weak Estudiantes. The key to win, as it was expected, turned out to be Alexis Sanchez. The win cost to River the second Belluschi's expulsion in three games.

Huracán - Argentinos Juniors 3:2
Mendoza, Nieto, Sanchez - Hauche, Cabrera
Huracan has remained the only unbeaten team of Apertura, having achieved a classy win over Argentinos.

Independiente - Boca Juniors 2:3
Denis, Matheu - Rodriguez (o.g.), Palermo, Gracian
A in a clash of the week Independiente lost its first points, but anyway showed great football. The win may mean much for Boca's stabilization.
