Diego Cocca earned his first silverware since returning to Racing Club after a 1-1 draw with Atlético Tucumán resulted in La Academia winning the triangular tournament in Salta.
Youngster Maxi Cuadra gave Racing an early lead and will perhaps never score an easier goal thanks to goalkeeper Josué Ayala’s heavy touch that allowed the forward to roll the ball into an empty net.
However, El Decano responded well after half time and David Barbona slotted in an equaliser after finding space between Racing’s centre backs.
Racing face Independiente for the second clásico of the summer on Monday in Mar del Plata while next week marks the start of the serious football for Atlético Tucumán. Pablo Lavallén’s side begin their Copa Libertadores campaign with Ecuadorian club El Nacional visiting the Monumental for the first leg of their playoff.
