Win gives Boca safety margin at top
Boca Juniors moved four points clear at the top of the Apertura with a 1-0 win at home to Estudiantes on Thursday.
Clemente Rodriguez's goal after 17 minutes was all that separated the two sides, while Estudiantes finished the match with 10 men following the last-minute dismissal of Matias Sanchez. The win gives Boca breathing space over nearest challengers Racing Club.
Tigre climbed to fifth with a 1-0 win at Argentinos Juniors, courtesy of a Carlos Luna goal 10 minutes into the second half. Pablo Barzola was sent off for Argentinos 19 minutes from time.
A late goal from Armando Cooper earned Godoy Cruz a 1-1 draw against Union Santa Fe. The visitors led through a 63rd-minute goal from Rodrigo Erramuspe until Cooper's equaliser seven minutes from time.
