The second date of the Professional League tournament was over and there were no teams with an ideal score. The big surprise was Platense: after beating Godoy Cruz in his debut, this Sunday he beat Vélez 1-0 as a visitor and is the only leader in the championship, the only one with the ideal score on two dates. Iván Gómez, with a header, scored the only goal for the Squid.

In the last game of the day there was another surprising result: in Santiago del Estero, Boca lost 1-0 to Central Córdoba (goal by González Metilli).

This Sunday’s activity began with an exciting 2-2 between Colón and Unión in the Santa Fe classic (goals by Farías from a penalty, Wanchope Abila, Luna Diale and the Uruguayan Alvez -from a penalty- in added time) and continued with another blow to Fernando Gago’s Racing, who lost 2-0 to Godoy Cruz (double by Salomón Rodríguez).


At the close of this day, River could not go from 0-0 (second consecutive) in the Monumental against Atlético Tucumán. A while before, ​Sarmiento​ beat Argentinos 1-0 with an excellent definition by Licha López in the first half. Thus, the one from Junín adds three points in the table, as does El Bicho.

Tigre and Barracas Central tied 1-1. Sepúlveda opened the match for Guapo and Retegui equalized with a great header for Matador to add four units and momentarily climb to the top of the tournament.

Arsenal and Banfield tied 0-0 in a boring match in Sarandí. The Drill had been given a penalty, but then the referee annulled it at the request of the VAR. The local had some chances in the end. The two teams added their first point in the tournament.


This Friday, Gimnasia beat Patronato en el Bosque 2-0, with goals from Carbonero and Tarragona, from a penalty. El Lobo was one of the leaders along with Newell’s. El Patron finished with 10 due to Valdez’s expulsion.

Estudiantes won 1-0 against Aldosivi thanks to a goal against López Quintana. Pincha hadn’t won for three games. The Shark deepened his crisis.

Lanús and Defense tied 1-1 at Fortaleza. Almirón’s team began winning with an Olympic goal from Malcorra. But the Halcón, with one less due to the expulsion of Francisco Pizzini after a VAR review, ended up reaching a tie with a definition from Raúl Loaiza.

With Cóccaro as a figure, Huracán beat Rosario Central 2-0 and won for the first time in the tournament. An intense and offensive team. Cristaldo and Blanco against, the goals of the Globe.

Independiente had a temper, held it in the final minutes and beat Talleres in Avellaneda with a goal from Lucas Romero. Triumph more than valuable for Red.


Newell’s and San Lorenzo opened the day with a 0-0 draw in which the VAR intervened twice. On the first occasion, a penalty that Silvio Trucco had given to Leprosy was reversed and Federico Gattoni’s red card was taken away. In the second, Cristian Lema ended up expelled.
