Aureliano Torres golazo vs Boca Juniors, Clausura 2011

On 12 March 2011 San Lorenzo hosted Boca Juniors in a game of huge importance to both sides in the fifth round of the Clausura 2011 tournament. San Lorenzo coached by Ramón Díaz needed the win in order to avoid falling too far behind the league leaders and Falcioni's Boca Juniors needed to take something from the game in order to climb away from their embarrasing league position of 16th.

The game was too nerve riddled to be considered great but the only goal of the game was certainly a classic, Aureliano Torres was given far too much space to run into by the Boca Juniors midfield and when nobody bothered to close him down he unleashed a powerful curling shot. At first viewing, the Boca Juniors goalkeeper García seems to be badly out of position but in a later replay it becomes clear how much the ball swerved back inside the post meaning that even a well positioned goalkeeper would have had real trouble trying to save it.

San Lorenzo held on for the 1-0 win despite some characteristic penalty box hurly burly from Boca's Martín Palermo. San Lorenzo took temporary leadership of the division while Boca Juniors slipped one position to 17th place.
