Argentina Apertura review

Velez replace Newell's at the top

November 10, 2012

Velez Sarsfield jumped to the top of the Apertura table as they came from behind to beat Godoy Cruz 2-1.

Nicolas Castro put the visitors ahead after 15 minutes, but the lead lasted just eight minutes before Facundo Ferreyra equalised.

Ferreyra then grabbed a second 15 minutes from time, allowing Velez to overtake Newell's Old Boys, who were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Quilmes.

The day's other game, between third-placed Belgrano Cordoba and Argentinos Juniors, also finished goalless.

With five games to go in the Apertura, Velez lead Newell's by a point, with Belgrano a further two points back.
