Game of the week: 15 December 2010 Racing 0-2 Vélez

On 12 December 2010 the Apertura 2010 championship in Argentina went down to the last round of fixtures. It looked like the tournament was destined for a championship playoff after Vélez Sársfield established a 2-0 lead against Racing Club a brilliant individual goal from Juan Manuel Martínez and an exceptional free kick from Maxi Moralex, and Estudiantes were being held 0-0 by Arsenal. It took two late goals for Estudiantes' ex Vélez striker Hernán López to secure a 5th domestic championship for the La Plata side.

Not only were the two goals brilliantly taken, but the atmosphere created by the Racing Club fans was amazing.
