Huracán have suffered so far in 2015 after struggling to juggle Copa Libertadores commitments at the start of the campaign and more recently experiencing an alarming dip in form which left them in the relegation zone. Last night in the Estadio Tomás A Ducó, El Globo made their supporters suffer further after blowing a two-goal lead against Atlético Rafaela only for Ramón Ábila to snatch a late winner and give them a much-needed, overdue win. Eduardo Dominguez’s double either side of half time appeared to have settled the nerves and set the home side on the path to victory but two excellent goals in four minutes by Federico González and Ignacio Pussetto levelled the match. Having thrown away the lead even a point would have felt like defeat for Huracán so the relief was evident when big centre-forward Ramón Ábila wonderfully worked an opening before slamming the ball into the roof of the net. A big win for El Globo over fellow strugglers and now they need to be looking upwards.
Lautaro Acosta once more proved to be the saviour for Lanús after his first half brace gave Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s side a first win in five and subjected Olimpo to another defeat and another match without a goal.
Earlier, the magic touch of Caruso Lombardi was evident and in just his second match in charge beleaguered Arsenal picked up their first win of the season (either that or it was simply a home match against the even more woeful Crucero del Norte). As expected it wasn’t particularly pretty but Federico Rasic’s penalty fifteen minutes from time was enough to finally give the few supporters who pay to watch Arsenal something to cheer about.
