Quilmes took advantage of playing the most out of form team in the Primera at home yesterday, chalking up a invaluable 1 – 0 win over Estudiantes. With the three points they remain just one place above Independiente in the relegation table but they now heap further pressure on their rivals. Later, in Floresta, All Boys drew with San Martin amid some controversy. A contentious penalty gave All Boys the lead, which lasted a minute, until San Martin equalised. The draw does little to help San Martin who are as good as gone. REPORTS AND GOALS HERE….
ALL BOYS 1 – 1 SAN MARTIN
Fresh from last week’s thrashing of Boca Juniors, San Martin would have gone into this game with a bit more confidence than usual. Unfortunately, this didn’t really transpire on the pitch as both sides failed to really take hold of a game which lacked quality. The talking point occurred after 57 minutes when the referee pointed to the spot to award All Boys a penalty after the slightest tug of a shirt. San Martin were up in arms over the decision and soon found themselves one down, after Angel Vildozo converted with ease. However, they were not behind for long. A minute later, a corner from the left was headed in by Lucas Landa to give each team a point.
QUILMES 1 – 0 ESTUDIANTES
Quilmes were four without a win going into this but would have seen this as a winnable game due to Estudiantes woeful form. They left it late but eventually in the 87th minute, Martin Cauteruccio fired home the winner. The most important result of this is that the gap between Quilmes and Estudiantes grew even further, making Independiente’s escape all the more unlikely.
