BUENOS AIRES - Velez Sarsfield beat San
Lorenzo 2-0 in an 84-minute match behind closed doors to go top
of the Argentine championship on Wednesday.
The game was rescheduled at Boca Juniors' Bombonera stadium
from March 20 when it was abandoned after six minutes because of
crowd violence at Velez's Fortin.
Velez went two points clear of River Plate to lead the
Clausura standings with 21 points from 10 matches.
In a game played in two halves of 42 minutes each, striker
Santiago Silva put Velez in front 12 minutes from time with a
shot across the face of goal into the bottom corner from
midfielder Victor Zapata's perfect crossfield pass.
The Uruguayan, joint top scorer in the Apertura championship
with 11 goals, took his tally for the season to 16.
Midfielder Augusto Fernandez added the second in stoppage
time, steering the ball home after fellow midfielder Ricky
Alvarez had shrugged off two defenders on the right to feed him
with a square ball.
The match from the sixth round of the Clausura a month ago
was halted by the referee when visiting San Lorenzo fans broke
down fencing behind one of the goals and their goalkeeper Pablo
Migliore was hit by a missile thrown from the crowd.
