Title hopefuls, San Lorenzo were brought back down to earth last night suffering an emphatic 3-0 defeat to relegation tipped, Argentinos Juniors. Despite having the better of the game, Caruso Lombardi’s side defended valiantly stunned El Ciclon with goals from Julio Barraza, Hernan Boyero and Rodrigo Gomez. Earlier in La Plata, Gimnasia hosted their fellow promoted side Rosario Central and continued their fine start to life back in the top flight. With two wins out of two Gimnasia find themselves the early pace setters and last night’s result was another well-deserved victory. Taking early advantage of Central’s drowsy defence, Gimnasia raced into a two goal lead. Former Gimnasia striker, Franco Neill pulled one back for Central but with 5 minutes remaining Ignacio Fernandez made sure that Gimnasia’s 100% record remained intact with a fine goal.
