Paolo Montero still has a task ahead of him with this Colón side but the Uruguayan saw that El Sabalero got off to a perfect start to the season with a 2-0 win against Aldosivi in Mar del Plata.
Ismael Blanco put the visitors ahead after 23 minutes following up his own lob that had come back off the crossbar and with Aldosivi lacking any cutting edge it was left to Diego Lagos to wrap up the victory. Blanco turned provider and his cross to the back post found Lagos in space to nod the ball past Matías Vega.
In the final match of round one, Temperley earned what could prove to be a huge three points in the relegation scrap thanks to Gastóm Aguirre’s early header. Patronato were poor on their travels in the Transición and not much appears to have changed but for El Gasolero it is a significant early boost for new coach Carlos Mayor.
Aldosivi 0 – 2 Colón
Temperley 1 – 0 Patronato
