We've been moving up while River have been slowing down. At the start of the season, the road ahead looked quite bleak for us but that has now changed. We're on our way and I think we have every chance to win the clausura.
We have moved into second place, tied with Gimnasia LP on 24 points, and are only three points behind River Plate.
At first it seemed like River Plate could not be stopped, winning match after match and scoring goals at will. But things have really slowed down for them lately, and I think Ortega and Cavenaghi have not scored in three or four league matches.
Boca Juniors is in a good position to take the lead, and if this trend by Boca and River continues, we may even win this Clausura.
Roman's goal was just brilliant. It was so nice that our sports channel in canada had to show it twice!:tongue:
He is very important for that team. WAIT WAIT! NO! He is the heart and soul of that team. Without him, Boca can fail miserably.
When I saw that goal and his other chances, I got really happy because I know that he is back to his old self and can finally play like he has been for the last few years. I thought since last summer he had not been in his best form because of injuries and lack of rest. Im happy to see him do his thing again.
