Argentina Clausura 2012 – Week 2

February 25th, 2012

Watch how Mariano Pavone shot Lanús into first place with a late victory goal against Independiente. In other news, Vélez has done quite well in this beginning, this time rattling Banfield in a 4-0 defeat which left, as in the Apertura, Banfield hanging in last place of the tournament.

Olimpo won an important 4-1 victory at home against Belgrano, while reigning champions disappointed in drawing 0-0 in a boring match at Unión from Santa Fé.

Finally, for the first time in 16 games, Newell´s Old Boys won (1-0 against Argentinos Juniors) while All Boys slowly, but safely, seems to be crawling away from the relegation line – this time winning 2-0 at home against Colón.

State Championship Updates from Brazil

February 19th, 2012

Tranquility is not a word readily associated with the Bahia clássico, but this Sunday’s Ba-Vi was a little different.

After a recent police strike that left 150 dead in ten days on Salvador’s streets, this week’s game had been christened the Clássico da Paz. It has been a troubled time for the city, and its football teams – without policing, recent Bahia and Vitória games had come close to being cancelled, only taking place with the help of the presence of the army.

 

The players, at least, did their part to calm any tension, serving up fairly soporific fare in the first head-to-head clash between técnicos, and midfield partners from that wonderful Brazil 1982 side, Toninho Cerezo and Paulo Roberto Falcão. The result will be slightly more welcomed by Bahia, in second, than Vitória, down in fourth spot, but most of all by leaders and defending champions Bahia de Feira, four points clear at the top. Bahia’s young striker Gabriel and zagueiro Donato were probably the standouts on the pitch. Best of all, there were no major disturbances among the 30,000 strong crowd.

It was a fairly humdrum round of fixtures in Pernambuco, with wins for the Recife big three of Santa Cruz, Náutico and Sport, and a draw for leaders Salgueiro. There was a definite feeling of aperitif about proceedings, with the real Medici wedding banquet coming on Thursday with the Clássico Das Multidoes between Santa and Sport. The biggest crowd in Brazil this year will watch it – 55,000 tickets are on sale, despite the game being live on TV, and carnaval (something of a big deal in these parts) being mere days away. Much will depend on the clash between two occasionally troubled veteran strikers – Sport’s Marcelinho Paraiba and Santa’s Denis Marques.

It was also standing room only on Sunday in Fortaleza, where the Cearense clássico took place at Presidente Vargas. The game lived up to its billing – Ceará led through a Felipe Azevedo penalty until the very end, when first Ciro (89 mins), then Kauê, with a superb free kick deep into injury time, scored for rivals Fortaleza. The result ended Ceará’s unbeaten run in this year’s competition, and meant Fortaleza took over as leaders.

There was a distinctly wild west feel to events in the Campeonato Paraense, where Águia de Marabá eliminated one of the state’s Big Two, Remo, in the semi-finals. It was a particularly heavy blow to take for Remo left back Aldivan, who was clobbered with a metal camera stand by Águia’s Alexandre Carioca as a mass brawl interrupted the game for 20 minutes. Remo will now join their Belém rivals Paysandu watching from the sofa as Águia take on Cametá in the first “turn” final.

Goiás lost their first of the year in the Campeonato Goiano, surprisingly going down to Goianésia, but remain clear at the top, while Vila Nova’s woes continue. The Time do Povo in Goiânia, who were relegated from Serie B in last year’s Brasileirão, lost again, this time to Atlético, and currently sit in a miserable 8th spot, only two off the bottom.

In the Sul, Figueirense defeated Avaí 1-0 in the Catarinense clássico, spoiling former Atlético Madrid man Cleber Santana’s debut for Avaí. The surprising Chapecoense continue in top spot.

Campeonato Carioca 2012 – Week 7

February 19th, 2012

 

Flamengo, Fluminense and Botafogo managed to join Vasco in the semi-finals of the Taça Guanabara.

In the game of the round, Flamengo struck back from going a goal down early in the second half to run out comfortable 3-1 winners against Resende in Volta Redonda. The Rubro Negro’s goals came courtesy of Ronaldinho, Vagner Love and Negueba.

 

Playing at the same time, Botafogo cruised to a 3-0 victory against Macaé at the Estadio Claudio Moacir. Argentine German Herrera opened the scoring in the 27th minute, before Felipe Menezes doubled the Fogão’s lead eight minutes later. Macaé posed little threat against Oswaldo’s side in the second half and three minutes from the time Elkeson sealed the win with a header.

 

In the evening kick-off, Fluminense ran out 3-0 winners against Bangu at São Januario. Captain Fred opened the scoring converting from the spot on the half hour mark, before his strike partner Araujo doubled the Tricolors lead moments later. Any chance of Bangu making a comeback in the second half were dashed when the talented Wellington Nem found the back of the net inside the 65th minute.

 

Playing at the same time, the already qualified Vasco managed to do their rivals Fluminense a favour, by beating Boavista 1-0, which enabled the Tricolor finish second in Group B – qualifying for the Taça Guanbara semi-finals. However, the Cruz de Malta’s incentive for victory was to maintain their 100% record in the Campeonato Carioca. Substitute Kim replaced Alecsandro early in the first-half and scored in the 35th minute.

Campeonato Gaucho 2012 – Week 8

February 19th, 2012

 

The Taça Piratini progressed into round eight this weekend and managed to produce another major upset.

Having already secured a place in the quarter finals last week, Internacional refused to step their foot of the gas – running out 3-1 winners against Pelotas on Saturday. Two goals from former Manchester City striker Jô and one from Elton was enough for the Colorado to see off their rivals, who scored a consolation goal four minutes from time.

 

Playing at the same time, Grêmio were beaten by São Jose 2-1 at the Estádio do Passo d’Areia. Alex gave the Zequinha the lead four minutes in to the second half, before Maraba scored a second inside the 88th minute. André Lima managed to grab a goal back for the Tricolor two minutes in to stoppage time, but the Serie A side ran out of time to make a late comeback. Fortunately for Caio Junior, his side had already booked their place in to the quarter-finals of the Taça Piratini last week.

Campeonato Mineiro 2012 – Week 2

February 12nd, 2012

 

The Campeonato Mineiro progressed into round two this week and produced a major upset.

Cruzeiro were the first of the Minas Gerais giants in action, taking on Guarani-MG at the Arena do Jacaré in Sete Legoas. Having not played last weekend, this was the Raposa’s first game of the season and they adopted a suprisingly defensive outlook with three volantes and only one meia. Vagner Mancini was made to pay for his conservatism, as Magalhaes’ first-half goal consigned the inspirationless Cruzeiro to a 1-0 defeat to start the season.

 

On the other hand, city rivals Atlético Mineiro claimed an away win in the Nassri Mattar over América TO. Rodrigo Sena opened the scoring for the home-side, but second-half goals for André and Mancini were enough to secure Galo a hard-earned three points away from home. Atlético and América Mineiro are now the only two teams with a 100% record after two rounds of action.
