The penultimate round of the 2012 Torneo Inicial came to an end on Monday night with a 2-0 win for Estudiantes de La Plata over San Martín de San Juan, as 20-year-old Carlos Auzqui scored the first and second goals of his first team career late on in the match. Earlier, Atlético Rafaela had made the trip to Rosario where they faced Newell’s Old Boys, and the hosts ran out 3-0 winners with a double from Fabián Muñoz and a late goal from Ignacio Scocco, who thus goes joint top of the goalscorers’ charts with Vélez Sarsfield youngster Facundo Ferreyra. All five of Monday’s goals can be seen right here.
Newell’s 3 – 0 Rafaela
Estudiantes 2 – 0 San Martín
