Game of the week: 8 December 2010 River Plate 0-4 Estudiantes

In the penultimate round of the Apertura 2010 championship in Argentina the league leaders Estudiantes de La Plata faced a tough looking trip to El Monumental to face a resurgent River Plate side, who had recovered from their slump in form that cost Angel Cappa his job.

River Plate's squad of young players like Rogelio Funes Mori and Erik Lamela mixed with experienced veterans like Ariel Ortega and Matías Almeyda had found their form again under caretaker manager J.J. López, however Estudiantes gave them a pasting in this game to put themselves within one win of securing their fifth Argentine league championship.
