Colón’s spectacular start to the season had to come to an end at some point and although Mauricio Sperduti extended that run in Mendoza, with a superbly worked goal after only eight minutes, Godoy Cruz quickly woke El Sabalero. The influential Pol Fernández smashed the home side level from 25 yards and minutes after the restart, Gabriel Carabajal curled El Tomba in front. Santiago Garcia poked in a third on the goalline after Jaime Ayovi had battled his way through and looped the ball towards the goal and with minutes remaining, Ángel González rifled in a fourth. Back to back wins for Godoy Cruz has them climb the table and while one defeat is not disastrous for Colón, a very tricky set of fixtures coming up could see them falter.
Defensa y Justicia followed up their victory over Atlético Rafaela with an excellent win over Tigre in Victoria. A goal apiece for Fabiàn Bordagaray and Nicolás Steffanelli, three each already for the season, sealed the points for El Halcón and left Mauro Camoranesi’s Tigre still looking for a first win.
In Córdoba, Belgrano and Banfield had to settle for share of the points after neither side could force a goal. Santiago Silva came closest for the visitors but his header came back off the inside of the post and into the arms of Juan Olave.
