Colón maintained their 100% start to the Copa De La Liga with a 2-0 win over San Lorenzo in Santa Fe.
A game of few clear chances was decided in the 67th minute when Luis Rodríguez nodded a deep cross into the path of Alexis Castro for the on-loan San Lorenzo midfielder to score against his parent club.
Diego Dabove turned to the Romero brothers and new signing Franco Troyansky from the bench but couldn’t help muster an opportunity and with San Lorenzo committed forward in stoppage time, Colón wrapped up victory. Goalkeeper Fernando Monetti appeared to have dealt with the possible breakaway but a mix-up with Federico Gattoni allowed Tomás Sandoval to roll the ball into the empty net.
Two wins from two for Colón at the top of Group A and an early setback for Dabove who must quickly establish his best eleven if El Ciclón are to have a successful season.
Round Two’s interzonal ‘clásico’ took place in Tucumán and Central Córdoba snatched a late win over Atlético.
New signing Leonardo Sequeira came off the bench to race away and slot in the winner three minutes from time and earn the Ferroviario an invaluable three points.
It didn’t look likely when Augusto Lotti swivelled to fire Atlético in front after quarter of an hour yet a superb Milton Gimenez diving header brought the visitors level before the break.
And finally, Huracán and Unión both still remain without a win after the two sides played out a 1-1 draw in Parque Patricios.
21-year-old midfielder Martín Cañete scored for the second week running with a fine free-kick to give Unión a 21st minute lead only for a Jonathan Galván handball moments later allowing Andrés Chávez to equalise from the spot.
Unión looked the more likely winners as the game went on but couldn’t find a way past Facundo Cambeses.
