Banfield Vs. Argentinos Juniors: 0-2 Full Time, Visitors Stellar

Banfield probably expected to get points against their opponents tonight, but apparently they'll get nothing and like it. Argentinos Juniors have shocked the world, or the small percentage of the world's population who keeps up on these things, by coming out in a new formation and playing a new style off football. Argentinos have played 4-4-2 in a very boring way all season, but tonight, they opted to play a really entertaining style of football in a 4-2-1-3 formation. My only explanation is that Pedro Troglio read a Jonathan Wilson column yesterday and thought "Crap, that sounds like a really good idea."

Franco Niell and Mauro Bogado were the scorers for Argentinos, and both goals came off of poor defending. That's not to take anything away from them, though. They were certainly the better team on the night. Despite the fact that they are undefeated through eight games, Argentinos are only up to ninth place. However, with Argentina being so tight during this tournament, they could be anywhere between first and 17th two weeks from now.
