Huracán and Newell’s played out Friday’s only Primera División game in Parque Caseros on Friday evening, and HEGS was there to see an utterly, utterly dull game characterised by two defences vulnerable to wide play, and two attacks seemingly unwilling to exploit that weakness. Rolando Schiavi had a penalty saved early on, and Rolando Zárate’s 19th minute goal was cancelled out in the second half by Mauricio Sperdutti. Huracán dominated the first half but ended the game lucky to get a point. You can watch the goals here and also, as a bonus, see Thursday night’s goal from the Copa Sudamericana game between Independiente and Argentinos Juniors (won 1-0 by El Rojo).
