I hate international weeks. They're the worst. England-Israel in no way makes up for a full slate of league games. Fortunately, futbol Argentino carries on regardless.
The good news from the weekend is that after a disastrous start, River Plate have vaulted themselves into contention for the Apertura title. New keeper Juan Ojeda (on right), who I must confess to not trusting thus far, made a brilliant save in the 3rd minute, the importance of which should not be discounted merely because River then stormed to a 5-0 win over Velez. If Ojeda maintains this form, he'll keep the brilliant Juan Pablo Carrizo (on left), on loan from Lazio, on the bench.
Completing a fine day, Boca then lost to Colon de Santa Fe. Add your own dancing banana emoticon here.
