Away from La Bombonera, there was action that was more meaningful, if anything, to the league standings. The lead went from Colón to Vélez, but is now shared between the Liniers club and Lanús, who beat Tigre on Sunday evening. Racing actually took the chance they were presented with to climb a little further away from relegation worries, whilst Huracán turned in the performance of the weekend. San Lorenzo’s players will meet their new boss Diego Simeone during the week – caretaker Alberto Fanessi saw them heavily beaten by San Martín de Tucumán on Sunday evening. Staggeringly, there wasn’t one red card this weekend. As ever, all the heroes are detailed right here.
