Argentinos Juniors return to the Primera and are joined by San Martín and Colón (VIDEO)


It was not easy and at times appeared as though the unthinkable would actually happen and leave Juan Román Riquelme and Argentinos Juniors languishing outside the 30-team Primera, but on Sunday afternoon in La Paternal, Los Bichos earned the point needed to gain their promotion back to the top flight. San Martín de San Juan will also be returning after a 3-0 win over Ferro Carril Oeste and in spite of crowd trouble and a pitch invasion leading to the match being halted early it looks as though Colón will too. They were leading Boca Unidos by three goals when the aforementioned idiots decided to interrupt the match and proceed to strip the players but Mostaza Merlo appears to be leading his side back. What this leaves then is a mini tri-tournament between Nueva Chicago, Gimnasia de Jujuy and Aldosivi for the fifth and final spot.

Argentinos Juniors  1 – 1  Douglas Haig

Colón de Santa Fe  3 – 0  Boca Unidos

San Martín de San Juan  3 – 0  Ferro Carril Oeste

Aldosivi  2 – 0  Gimnasia de Jujuy
