Newell's Old Boys missed the chance to return to the top of the Clausura table as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal Sarandi thanks to Dario Benedetto's double on Monday.

Benedetto struck in the seventh minute and again 10 minutes later to ensure Newell's stayed one point behind Lanus, who beat Argentinos Juniors over the weekend.

In the day's other game, All Boys were held to a goalless draw by Estudiantes, who had Marcos Gelabert sent off after 70 minutes.
