GOALKEEPER

Agustín ORION
Boca Juniors

After week 4 of this year’s Clausura, the Boca Juniors goalkeeper is still yet to concede. This week he returned to his previous club, San Lorenzo, for the first time with his new club. Despite being booed and jeered from the very first whistle, Orion was able to concentrate and dealt comfortably with everything San Lorenzo offered. He also now holds the best goals against average in world football.

Argentinos Juniors’ Barzola had a great game against Independiente as he limited their winger’s distribution and was a threat down the left hand side. In Banfield, their centre back, Alayes, was fantastic all match. The ex-Estudiantes man won everything in the air and was very decisive in set piece situations.

Once again for Boca Juniors, Matias Caruzzo stepped in to replace the injured Flaco Schiavi. He had a very comfortable match, and dealt well with San Lorenzo’s biggest threat, Carlos Bueno. Tigre continued their surprisingly good form as they beat Lanús 1-0 at home. At the heart of that win and the heart of the Tigre defence was Lucas Orban, who played well all game.

Juan Sanchez Mino replaced the missing Juan Román Riquelme this weekend against San Lorenzo, and the youngster seamlessly fitted into the side. Despite having very limited game time in previous campaigns, he took his goal very well; an arrowed far post effort from 25 yards out. Martin Rolle scored the stoppage time winner for Olimpo against Atl. Rafaela from the spot to take his club up to 8th place in the Clausura.

 Although Godoy Cruz left Banfield with a share of the points, Diego Villar was one positive the Mendozan club could take from the game as the bearded winger continued his recent good form. Pablo Hernandéz gave Diego Milito a torrid evening, as the Independiente centre back could not contain his range of passing. Hernandéz strolled around the final third, playing with his head up. His leadership resulted in a 3-1 victory for Argentinos.

Ivan Moreno y Fabianesi struck a double in the Santa Fé clasicó. The first was a well taken finish after bursting through one challenge and nutmegging Avendano. The second, also in the first half hour, was a well timed header to take Colón 2-0 up and bag his third of the campaign.

A special mention for Tigre’s Diego Morales, as he scored the only goal of the match from the penalty spot against Lanús. His goal, just five minutes into the first half of the match, was enough to take maintain Tigre’s unbeaten run this season and take his side up to 2nd as Tigre look to escape Promoción.
