Argentina: Apertura 2007, 6th Week

Boca Juniors - Huracán 1:0
Ledesma (pen.)
Despite a loss on Bombonera, Huracan looked solid. The penalty was questionable enough for Huracan's coach Mohamed to be sent off for protesting against it. Boca has gone the riquelmeless period in the best possible manner having collected virtually the maximum of points. With Riquelme they are about only to improve.

Tigre - Banfield 1:0
Tigre's second straight win, this time against a strong Banfield. Looks like Diego Cagna knows how to build a competitive team out of nothing.

Rosario Central - Olimpo 1:1
Arzuaga - Lujambio
Rosario managed not to lose, thanks to the first Arzuaga's goal of the tournament. Olimpo should not be considered as a weak opponent, so for the Central it's an achievement after the series of losses.

Arsenal de Sarandí - Newell´s Old Boys 1:0
Arsenal has improved its miserable situation too having beaten unpredictable Newell's. The teams in this Apertura go unprecedently even.

Argentinos Juniors - Colón de Santa Fe 2:1
Ortigoza (pen.), Chitzoff (o.g.) - Cardetti
Argentinos broke their streak of two losses, while Colon broke their streak of three wins.

Lanús - Gimnasia de Jujuy 2:0
Aguirre, Valeri (pen.)
Lanus too contributed to the evenness of Argentinean league this autumn, having outplayed the Jujenos. The games become less and less predictable.

Gimnasia La Plata 1:0 Independiente
The loudest El Lobo's week's win over Independiente that had been looking invincible. Julio Cesar Falcioni confirms his reputation of one of Argentina's best coaches.

San Martín San Juan - Estudiantes La Plata 1:0
Jointly with Rosario Central Estudiantes seems the weakest Apertura's team as of now. San Martin has already turned into a considerable power to be taken into account by everyone.

Vélez Sarsfield - San Lorenzo 2:0
Zapata, Silva
Velez keeps strictly its 50% win/loss rate. This time La Volpe explained the victory by mystic forces.

Racing Club - River Plate 1:1
Sava (pen.) - Lussenhoff
River played without Belluschi and should be extremely content with the result. Racing severely lacks points.
