Aldosivi punish Atlético Tucumán & Argentinos Juniors hold Huracán (VIDEO)

A second half salvo saw Aldosivi put three past Atlético Tucumán in Mar del Plata to earn their first win of the season.

A first half which the visitors shaded with Augusto Lotti twice going close was brought abruptly to an end around the hour mark when Nazareno Solis’ teasing cross from the left deflected off Guillermo Acosta and into his own net.

Shortly after things got worse for Atlético as Cristian Lucchetti parried Gonzalo Verón’s shot only for Solis to slide in the second and if there were question marks over Lucchetti for that goal, the 41-year-old left no doubts over the third.

Coming just after a spell of pressure from the visitors, Lucchetti miscontrolled a firm backpass and in his scrambled attempts to clear the goalkeeper wiped out Verón. Substitute Alan Ruiz gleefully accepted the gift and stroked home the penalty to wrap up the points.

A little later in Parque Patricios, Huracán and Argentinos Juniors had to settle for a share of the points as neither side could find a breakthrough in what was a pretty non-eventful game.

Huracán will feel they perhaps should have nicked it during the second half with Lucas Barrios spurning a glorious one-on-one opportunity and Rodrigo Gómez hitting the crossbar with a curling free-kick but it ended all-square.

Aldosivi  3 – 0  Atlético Tucumán

Huracán  0 – 0  Argentinos Juniors
