Two goals at the end of either half gave Nelson Vivas’ Estudiantes a comfortable win over Nacional B side, Los Andes to secure a place in the next round and a clash with Unión.
Lucas Viatri powered El Pincha in front minutes before half time after a corner from the right had invitingly bobbled across the face of goal and in the closing stages Lucas Rodríguez put the result beyond doubt.
A simple finish for the 19-year-old after Maximiliano Gagliardo had smothered Gabriel Graciani’s initial effort. Rodríguez will have more difficult chances this season but could be one to look out for if Estudiantes impress again.
Estudiantes 2 – 0 Los Andes
