River Plate edge Olimpo in Bahía Blanca & Banfield end winless streak with victory away to Patronato (VIDEO)


A largely reserve River Plate side ended their recent run of poor results in Bahía Blanca against Olimpo thanks to a wonderful headed goal by Leonardo Pisculichi midway through the second half. Despite any hopes of finishing in the top two are gone for Marcelo Gallardo’s side the result is a timely boost ahead of their final Copa Libertadores group game and next weekend’s superclásico.

In Paraná, Banfield earned only their second win of the season with a 2-0 victory over Patronato. Two superbly taken Giovani Simeone goals handed El Taladro a first win since the opening weekend.

Patronato  0 – 2  Banfield

Olimpo  0 – 1  River Plate
