Quilmes make their point, but All Boys aren’t so lucky

Two of the newly-promoted sides made their Torneo Apertura debuts on Saturday. Quilmes, who finished second in last season’s Nacional B, did well; a last minute goal from J.J. Morales meant they claimed a draw at home to Colón, never easy opponents to start against. All Boys played really well, and had the better of their match away to Racing for stretches, but a lack of decisiveness in front of goal told and, even though Claudio Yacob was red-carded for the hosts, Racing ended up winning 1-0. A Seba Verón penalty gave Estudiantes a winning start away to Newell’s, and champions Argentinos conceded two second half goals in quick succession to lose 2-1 at home to Huracán; a win by the same scoreline a few months ago handed them the championship in Huracán’s stadium. All the goals are right here.
