Juan Román Riquelme – and, lest it be forgotten, Claudio Borghi – took on their old club, Argentinos Juniors, and lost 2-0 thanks to two late goals in quick succession after a late nightmare by Boca Juniors goalkeeper Cristian Lucchetti. Riquelme had a few moments, but by and large lacked precision – as you’d expect, him having been out for six months. Elsewhere today, Racing and Arsenal de Sarandí drew 2-2 in an entertaining match, Gimnasia beat Quilmes 1-0 in a very dull one, and Godoy Cruz and Newell’s drew 0-0 with visiting goalkeeper Sebastián Peratta putting in a phenomenal performance. All the highlights are right here.
Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata 1 – 0 Quilmes
Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba 0 – 0 Newell’s Old Boys
Racing Club 2 – 2 Arsenal Fútbol Club
Boca Juniors 0 – 2 Argentinos Juniors
