With their latest win, Arsenal remain the only undefeated side in the league this season and are only 3 points behind Newell’s. Julio Furch’s neat finish, 15 minutes from time was enough to seal victory and give Colon their fifth straight defeat. The defeat signalled the end for Manager, Ruben Forestello as he resigned in the aftermath.


Godoy Cruz managed to climb out of the relegation zone with this win in Mendoza yesterday afternoon. If anything will save Martin Palermo’s side it is their home form, as they remain undefeated in the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas. Jonathan Ramis’ header on the hour mark gave them the lead and Juan Garro’s close range finish with minutes remaining wrapped up the win.


A fourth win from five home matches has helped Gimnasia to a comfortable start back in the Primera and despite going behind early in this one, they were good value for the win. Mauro Zarate put Velez into an early lead thanks to Lucas Pratto’s intelligent flick put him through on goal but the sending off of Sebastian Dominguez just before half time changed the course of the game. Lucas Licht’s deflected shot in the second half drew the home side level and Maxi Meza’s header completed the comeback.


A deserved win ended a run of a five games without a win and sets up Rosario for the clasico with Newell’s in 2 weeks. This victory was no doubt aided by Lanus’ own stupidity. When the referee awarded a penalty in the first half for a hand ball against Carlos Araujo, Lanus were so incensed that a number of players argued their way into the book. Not content with a yellow card, goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin continued and was sent off. After this delay, Nery Dominguez blazed the penalty over but Central made the most of the numerical advantage.
Franco Neill headed the home side in front and although Lanus found an equaliser through Ismael Blanco, Diego Lagos was on hand to head the winner from a corner.
