The surprisingly good starts made by Argentinos Juniors and Arsenal continued, to some extent, as both sides avoided defeat and contributed to a dull 0-0. Arsenal remain undefeated and Argentinos’ mean defence continues to make it very difficult for their opponents. Belgrano came from two down to defeat Atletico Rafaela 3-2 in Cordoba to earn their first win of the season and later Lanus thumped Olimpo 3-0. Life back in the Primera is proving tough for the newcomers and the wait for a first win goes on. SEE THE GOALS HERE….
ARGENTINOS JUNIORS 0 – 0 ARSENAL
BELGRANO 3 – 2 ATLETICO RAFAELA
Two first half goals, a scrappy Cristian Canuhe goal and a thunderbolt from Andres Rodales, gave Rafaela the advantage but Belgrano came back well. Two, rather fortunate, goals either side of half time from Ezequiel Maggiolo brought them level and then Luciano Lollo completed the come back being able to score at the second attempt after his penalty was saved.
LANUS 3 – 0 OLIMPO
Lanus at home proved too strong for Olimpo, as they improved their home record now to 21 without loss. Lauturo Acosta set them on their way when he smashed home the opener just before half time. Olimpo looked to be getting a grip of the game in the second half but two goals in two minutes with 20 minutes remaining killed off the game. Ismael Blanco with the first and then moments later, Nicolas Pasquini ensured the victory. Olimpo still without a win and things already looking a little bleak.
