Lanus drew 0 – 0 away to Union to go level on top with Newell’s on 22 points but will be disappointed to see their lead cut. However, they remain unbeaten and don’t have the distraction of the Copa Libertadores.
Tigre left it late to defeat Argentinos Juniors 1 – 0. A feisty affair with three red cards.
UNION 0 – 0 LANUS
