Saturday’s three matches were all played out in binary, with only San Lorenzo bucking an already dull trend by failing to score altogether. That failure gave Racing, in Miguel Angel Russo’s first match in charge, a 1-0 win in El Cilindro which didn’t entirely satisfy the new boss; ‘We still need to generate more play,’ he told the press after the game. Tigre drew 1-1 with Gimnasia La Plata, and Lanús cut short a run of five straight defeats (league and Copa Libertadores) with a 1-1 draw away to Newell’s, a result which might give Luis Zubeldía some temporary respite. You can watch all five goals right here.
Tigre 1 – 1 Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata
