Godoy Cruz continued their strong start to the Clausura campaign as Gonzalo Castellani bagged a hat-trick in a 3-0 win on Monday that moved them to the top of the early-season standings.

Castellani scored in the 43rd, 50th and 89th minutes in a straightforward home win over Rosario Central that moves Godoy Cruz on to nine points from their opening four fixtures, and they lead Colon Santa Fe, Estudiantes and San Lorenzo on goal difference.

Belgrano Cordoba came from two goals down to take a 2-2 draw away to Gimnasia La Plata.

The hosts had wasted little time in taking a first-minute lead through Jose Correa, and Lucas Licht doubled their advantage from the penalty spot in the 40th minute.

Luciano Lollo got the visitors back in it moments before half-time, and Jorge Velazquez earned them a point with a 70th minute strike.

Tigre and Argentinos Juniors shared the points in a goalless draw.
