Velez Sarsfield moved to within a point of the Argentinian Clausura summit with a 2-0 win over Estudiantes.

Lanus moved into mid-table with a 3-1 home success over Racing Club. Carlos Izquierdoz and Mariano Pavone gave Lanus a two-goal interval lead and Silvio Romero wrapped up the points in the 65th minute, before substitute Valentin Viola pulled a goal back five minutes from the end.
