The Apertura 2007 saw a great deal of success for the "smaller" teams in Argentine football. The eventual champions Club Atletico Lanus won the title for the first time in their history, the first "virgin" champions since Argentinos Juniors in 1984.
2nd place went to Club Atletico Tigre, a club playing their first season in the Argentine Primera since 1980 and making their best finish ever in the top flight.
3rd place went to Banfield, completing an extremely unlikely top three.
Another small club, Arsenal de Sarandi won the 2007 Copa Sudamericana, the first major title in their history, making them the first Argentine club other than Boca Juniors to win an international competition since San Lorenzo won the Copa Sudamericana 2002.
Another feature of the Apertura was the number of managerial changes, by the end of the Apertura there had been 12 managerial changes.
The Clausura 2008 was won by River Plate, their first title since 2004.
