Tight in the relegation battle as Sarmiento take a point from Banfield (VIDEO)

Argentinos Juniors’ victory over Boca Juniors breathed life into their bid to avoid relegation and heaped pressure on Caruso Lombardi’s Sarmiento, who had dropped to the foot of the descenso as a result. In need of a result on Tuesday evening, El Verde travelled to Banfield and despite playing most of the game against ten men, the visitors could only take a draw. Iván Rossi’s red card and handed Sarmiento the initiative but unable to breakdown the Banfield defence, both sides had to settle for a stalemate. The draw means Sarmiento are now on exactly the same average as Argentinos Juniors with three to play.


Banfield  0 – 0  Sarmiento
