Well, perhaps not quite an elephant. But Racing Club were on a high following their opening weekend win over Rosario Central, and on Tuesday night they took the lead but ended up dead and buried thanks to a comeback from Colón to win 2-1 in El Cementerio de Los Elefantes. Juan Carlos Falcón put the visitors ahead after 13 minutes but Esteban Fuertes equalised before half time and Juan Manuel Lucero got what proved to be the winner shortly after the break. Elsewhere on Tuesday, Tigre got a 1-0 win away to Central, and Vélez Sársfield beat Arsenal 3-0 in Sarandí. You can watch the goals from those latter two matches right here, right now.
Rosario Central 0 – 1 Tigre
Arsenal Fútbol Club 0 – 3 Vélez Sársfield
I’ll have the goals for Racing vs Colón online on Wednesday night – they’re not yet available as I type this.
