Boca enjoys successful start to Clausura campaign
Buenos Aires, Argentina (Sports Network) - After winning last season's Argentina Apertura title, Boca Juniors got off on the right foot in the Clausura on Friday with a 2-0 win at home against Olimpo.
Dario Cvitanich scored five minutes before the break for Boca, and Pablo Mouche extended the advantage with a goal in the 66th minute.
The result gets Boca off to a good start after the opening weekend in the league produced more than its fair share of draws.
Lanus was another side that made a positive first impression as the club got two goals from Mariano Pavone in a 4-1 home win over San Lorenzo on Friday in a match that saw the visitors finish the game with nine men.
Two of Saturday's three matches finished level as Belgrano and All Boys ended 0-0 after 90 minutes while Estudiantes and Newell's each claimed a point in a 1-1 contest that saw Maximiliano Urruti score the equalizer for Newell's in the 48th minute.
A goal from San Martin's Gaston Caprari just after the hour mark was enough for a 1-0 win over Independiente, while three games on Sunday also finished level as Racing and Tigre ended without a goal as well as Union's match at Arg. Juniors.
Velez Sarsfield and Godoy Cruz traded goals in the opening 25 minutes of a 1-1 draw, with Atletico Rafaela notching a 3-0 victory over Banfield with two goals from Dario Gandin.
On Monday, Colon and Arsenal tied 0-0.
