Racing Club 4-3 Olimpo, Clausura 2011 - Partidazo

On Saturday 5 March 2011 Racing Club hosted Olimpo in the fourth round of the Clausura 2011 tournament. Both sides had the opportunity to rise to the top of the table with a win, Racing were without the creative midfield force of Gio Moreno, who looks likely to miss the rest of the season but in Teó Gutierrez they seem to have found another Colombian gem of a player.

Racing Club got off to a blistering start with three goals in the first seventeen minutes, two from Pablo Lugüercio and a brilliant team goal finished off by Lucas Licht. For the rest of the half they toyed with Olimpo, seemingly trying to walk the ball into the net or to score the perfect goal. Many experienced commentators began saying that this was the most confident Racing Club performance in years.

When Teó Gutíerrez knocked in their fourth goal within the first two minutes of the second half many people began to fear a terrible humiliation coming for the visitors from Bahía Blanca however within 11 minutes of Gutiérrez scoring the fourth Olimpo were right back in the game with two goals from Ezequiel Maggiolo and a first goal for the club from Nicolás Bianchi Arce.

Olimpo had given themselves more than half an hour to find one more goal for a famous result but Racing looked the more likely scorers with Hauche looking particularly good.
