Boca win again to extend run
Leaders Boca Juniors extended their unbeaten start to 16 games with a 2-1 win away to Godoy Cruz on Sunday.
Dario Cvitanich opened the scoring after 10 minutes before a 37th-minute Rolando Schiavi gave Boca breathing space. Godoy Cruz pulled their goal back with just four minutes remaining, through Ariel Rojas, as Boca pulled nine points clear at the top.
Velez Sarsfield and Colon Santa Fe drew 1-1 to join Racing Club in a three-way tie for third. Leandro Velazquez scored first for Velez after 20 minutes before Ernesto Javier Chevanton scored immediately after coming on at half-time.
Estudiantes climbed off the foot of the table as they rallied from behind to win 2-1 at Arsenal Sarandi. The hosts had led through Mauro Obolo (21) but Estudiantes battled back for just their third win thanks to strikes from Gaston Fernandez (56) and Juan Veron (80).
Estudiantes' win meant Banfield slipped into last place after they conceded an injury-time equaliser in a 2-2 draw against Argentinos Juniors. Santiago Salcedo Gonzalez broke Banfield's hearts with a late equaliser in a stormy end that saw Jorge Achucarro and Miguel Torren sent off for either side.
Banfield looked like getting a much needed win when, after going behind to a Fabian Bordagaray goal (26), they forged ahead through Jonathan Gomes (56) and Facundo Ferreira (86).
