Gabriel Heinze leads Argentinos Juniors back to the Primera (VIDEO)


The Buenos Aires neighbourhood of La Paternal erupted in celebration on Saturday afternoon as Argentinos Juniors secured the victory needed over Gimnasia de Jujuy to ensure promotion back to the Primera.

No one could deny that Gabriel Heinze’s side have been comfortably the best side in the Nacional B this season and Saturday’s win took Los Bichos 13 points clear of Chacarita Juniors and Guillermo Brown with four rounds remaining.

After missing a number of clear chances it had looked as though Los Bichos would need to wait a little longer to make certain of their place in the top flight but three minutes from time, Nicolás González got in behind the visitors’ defence and rifled in the winner.

Who will join Argentinos Juniors in the 28-team Primera looks set to go to the wire but given how dominant Heinze’s boys have been and the club’s fine history, few could begrudge Los Bichos a place at the top table of Argentine football.
