Argentine League Roundup, Dec. 10

BY foxsports • December 11, 2009

Matias Abelairas and Diego Buonanotte scored first-half goals Thursday as River Plate defeated Racing Club 2-0 in Argentina's Apertura tournament.

Chacarita and Velez played to a scoreless draw, Arsenal defeated Atletico Tucuman 2-0 and Rosario Central overwhelmed Estudiantes 3-0 in other matches Thursday.

The title will be decided on Sunday, when Banfield is hoping to claim it first title in the club's 113 years with a victory at Boca Juniors.

Banfield leads with 41 points, two ahead of Newell's Old Boys. A draw against Boca would be enough as long as Newell's does not win by three goals or more.
