Hasta El Gol Siempre at related • 0 views
The Torneo Apertura started in chaos, with no-one sure which TV channels games would be screened on and many finding it so difficult to find just one title contender that Boca Juniors, of all teams, were held up by some commentators as the most likely candidates (I'd never make a silly mistake like that of [.

The clásico grondonino in Sarandí ended all square on Friday afternoon, so Arsenal and Independiente go off on their winter holidays relieved, no doubt, that the Clausura is finally over for them.

Quisiera que dejáramos de lado un poco la estufa, al menos hasta que termine el torneo, porque si no mal recuerdan tenemos un juego el próximo importante que queramos o no importa para cuestiones de números y la porcentual.

Pues bien, el partido entre Tigres y Tuzos ha generado polémica desde un tiempo a la fecha, tal vez sin generar la misma rivalidad que un Tigres vs Monterrey, pero muy cercano a ello.
