Colón win at last, Estudiantes go top; Racing and Godoy suffer

Estudiantes go top of the league, at least for a night

Friday evening’s two games saw two firsts: Estudiantes de La Plata conceded their first goal of the season in domestic competition, and Colón got their first win, at the fifth attempt. The santafecinos beat Racing 2-1 in El Cilindro, thanks to goals from Esteban Fuertes and Joaquín Larrivey in the first half, either side of a Claudio Bieler equaliser for the hosts. They were clearly the better side but Estudiantes, in their match away to Godoy Cruz, had to suffer rather more. Diego Villar gave the hosts an early lead, and although Francisco Dutari’s own goal put Estudiantes back level just 20 minutes in, it wasn’t until the second minute of stoppage time that Leandro González won the game for the Pincha. You can see the goals from both matches right here, as well as Thursday night’s Copa Sudamericana qualifier between Vélez Sarsfield and Banfield (the visitors won 1-0).

  1. bichi fuertes had his collar up a la eric cantona? heh.

    godoy cruz has yet to win a game with faraoni in primera, 7 games total, all losses, 3 red cards, 7 yellows (2 double yellows). They’ve only won once in National B against quilmes with faraoni as ref.

    Coincidently Estudiantes has never lost a match with faraoni on the pitch. 7 games, 6w-1d
