Day of draws benefits Boca
Atletico Rafaela and Belgrano Cordoba cancelled each other out in Argentina's Apertura.
Second-placed Atletico could have closed the gap on runaway leaders Boca Juniors to six points with a victory but a goalless draw means they are eight points off the pace, two fewer than fourth-placed Belgrano.
Belgrano played for half an hour with ten men, after having Ribair Rodriguez sent off, but they held out for a point.
Ivan Perez restored Independiente's lead nine minutes into the second half, but Matos was on target again seven minutes later.
Olimpo and San Lorenzo also shared the points after a 1-1 draw. Enzo Kalinski gave the visitors a fourth-minute lead but they had Juan Salgueiro sent off in the 32nd minute, and Julio Cesar Furch made Olimpo's numerical advantage pay off with the 73rd-minute equaliser.
