Torneo Clausura leaders Colon Santa Fe won 1-0 against Tigre on Friday evening.

Lucas Alario's early penalty was enough to secure a fifth win in the opening nine games and took Colon three points ahead of Estudiantes, who play Velez Sarsfield on Saturday.

Olimpo lie fourth after beating Atletico Rafaela 2-1 in the day's other game. Dylan Gissi's sixth-minute opener was cancelled out by Federico Gonzalez early in the second half but substitute Jose Adolfo Valencia scored the winner two minutes after his introduction.
