Lanus held, San Lorenzo go third
Lanus missed the chance to go clear at the top of the Apertura standings with a goalless draw at San Martin San Juan.
A share of the spoils, however, was enough to move them level with Velez Sarsfield on seven points at the top of the standings.
San Lorenzo secured a 3-1 victory at home over Argentinos Juniors to move up to third place.
Emmanuel Gigliotti and Juan Jose Morales traded goals to level matters before Bernardo Romeo and Emiliano Tellechea struck in the last 11 minutes to take the points.
Independiente beat Estudiantes 1-0 despite losing both Matias De Federico and Adrian Argacha to red cards. Substitute Marco Perez scored the winner in the 46th minute.
