All the goals from round seven: As cup commitments produce slip-ups Boca Juniors remain imperious at top


In case you missed any of the goals from round seven of the Superliga season, here are all the results, all the goals and how the table looks afterwards….

Banfield  1 – 1  Colón

Diego Vera’s first half goal looked as though it may help Colón to yet another narrow victory but El Sabalero’s defence was eventually breached when Mauricio Sperduti drilled in from the penalty spot. A share of the points keeps Colón up in sixth while Banfield remain in the Copa Sudamericana spots.

Argentinos Juniors  3 – 2  Arsenal

Expectations may not have been high for Arsenal’s visit to La Paternal but it produced a surprising five-goal thriller that saw Argentinos Juniors chalk up a fourth straight win. Early goals from Facundo Montseirin and Mosquito gave Arsenal a commanding lead but headers from Jonathan Sandoval and Damián Battalini drew the home side level before the break. With the game heading for a draw, Leonardo Pisculichi’s 82nd-minute free kick eluded everyone and sailed into the net to hand Los Bichos a win.

Huracán  4 – 0  Lanús

Lanús with eyes on their Copa Libertadores semi final second leg were well beaten by Huracán in Parque Patricios. A Ramón Ábila goal either side of half time in addition to goals from Alejandro Romero Gamarra and Mariano González gave El Globo a much needed 4-0 win.

Unión  2 – 0  Godoy Cruz

Unión’s excellent season continued as they remain in the top five with victory over Godoy Cruz. A Lucas Gamba penalty and a scrappy Diego Zabala goal earned the three points as El Tatengue impress.

San Martín  1 – 0  Estudiantes

San Martín climbed to sixth after a 1-0 win over Estudiantes in San Juan. Luis Ardente’s early penalty was enough for the points.

Atlético Tucumán  3 – 1  Racing Club

All that matters for Racing this week is securing a Copa Sudamericana semi final place but the manner in which La Academia fell three down inside 20 minutes away to Atlético Tucumán would have disappointed Diego Cocca. Favio Alvarez and Guillermo Acosta put El Decano in the driving seat before a Mariano Barbieri own goal virtually ended the contest. Lautaro Martínez headed his first goal since returning from injury in first half stoppage time but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation for Racing.

Talleres  4 – 0  River Plate

Securing passage to the Copa Libertadores final in midweek is all that matters for River Plate but Marcelo Gallardo will not have expected his second string side to lose 4-0 away to Talleres. Two Juan Ramírez goals, another by Boca loanee Marcelo Torres and a late Lucas Olazo penalty wrapped up victory. Pushing La T up into third and River nine points behind Boca Juniors ahead of the weekend’s Superclásico.

Newell’s Old Boys  2 – 1  Chacarita Juniors

Newell’s chalked up only a second win of the season while Chacarita Juniors’ wait goes on after a 2-1 victory on Sunday. Brian Sarmiento and Bruno Bianchi had the home side in control at half time and although Juan Ramírez’s stunning volley pulled one back for Chacarita it was another concerning defeat.

Gimnasia  4 – 0  Vélez Sarsfield

Struggling for goals and wins, Gimnasia had endured a poor start to the season but had no difficulty in brushing Vélez Sarsfield aside. Nicolás Dibble, Nicolás Mazzola, Lorenzo Faravelli and Nicolás Colazo gave El Lobo a 4-0 win in La Plata, serving as a real wake-up for relegation threatened Vélez.

Temperley  0 – 2  San Lorenzo

Unbeaten San Lorenzo provide Boca Juniors’ closest rivals despite still sitting six points off the pace after a 2-0 win away to Temperley. Gabriel Gudiño pounced on a error to to slot in an early opener and the in-form Ezequiel Cerutti sealed the points fifteen minutes from time.

Boca Juniors  4 – 0  Belgrano

Seven matches, seven wins, nineteen goals scored and only one conceded. There are no signs of Boca Juniors losing ground after a simple 4-0 win over Belgrano on Sunday. A Lucas Acosta own goal made the visitors already daunting task inside La Bombonera more difficult and when Edwin Cardona nodded a second before the break, the result was almost beyond doubt. No Boca victory is complete without a Darío Benedetto goal and with Jorge Sampaoli in attendance, the Superliga’s best striker struck twice to complete the rout.

Independiente  1 – 1  Patronato

Maxi Meza salvaged a last minute point for Independiente against Patronato on Sunday evening after Sebastián Ribas’ first half goal looked to have given the visitors a surprise victory. While the Copa Sudamericana is undoubtedly the priority another two points dropped in Avellaneda will be a source of frustration for El Rojo.

Defensa y Justicia  1 – 1  Olimpo

Olimpo remain without a win, bottom of the Superliga table and in the descenso drop zone after a 1-1 draw away to Defensa y Justicia. A superb Fernando Márquez volley gave El Halcón the lead and while David Depetris headed a late equaliser it wasn’t enough to hand Olimpo a victory.

Tigre  1 – 1  Rosario Central

Tigre’s wait for a Superliga win goes on after Marco Ruben scored late to deny Caruso Lombardi’s side. A thumping Lucas Menossi volley put the home side in front but Ruben poked in a leveller.
