Diego Dabove remains under pressure just games into his tenure as San Lorenzo manager after a draw with Huracán on Saturday evening.
This weekend’s clásico was of extra importance to both sides with just the one win between them so far. Huracán gifted San Lorenzo the upper hand in the first half when Raúl Lozano’s miscued backpass left Franco Di Santo with a clean run on goal. The chance expertly taken by the former Wigan striker.
Yet the goal did little to settle San Lorenzo and with a little under twenty minutes remaining Franco Cristaldo arrived in the penalty box to head Huracán level.
Earlier Colón made it four wins from four thanks to a late Luis Rodríguez penalty against Aldosivi.
A deflected Alexis Castro strike, his third of the season, gave Colón the lead but a wonderful Francisco Grahl free-kick equalised before the break.
It looked as though it would be the first points dropped for the Sabalero until the 86th minute when Javier Iritier tripped Rodríguez and the Pulga tucked it away in customary fashion.
Lanús required an equally late goal to take all three points from the visit of Atlético Tucumán.
A scrappy Guillermo Acosta had given Atlético the lead before a 73rd minute José Sand penalty levelled things up. With the game heading for a draw, 21-year-old substitute Matías Esquivel produced an exquisite curling shot from outside the box to win it for the Granate.
Late goals from Wilder Cartegena and Renzo Tesuri gave Godoy Cruz a 3-1 win over Platense in Mendoza.
Newly acquired City group talent Thiago Palacios gave Platense a first half lead before Ezequiel Bullaude ensured things were level at the break. The drama coming in the closing stages and with the win Godoy Cruz climbing to fourth in Group A.
Lastly, goals at either end of the game in Junín saw Sarmiento and Talleres share the points.
Gabriel Graciani scored with a minute on the clock to give the home side the lead but a first win of the season was denied by a 90th minute Rafael Pérez header.
