Quilmes won for the first time in the 2010 Torneo Apertura on Sunday, beating Godoy Cruz 2-1 in the only game of the day to go over two goals. Vélez Sarsfield went joint top of the league, on thirty points with Estudiantes de La Plata. They did so by beating Lanús 1-0 with a fantastic shot from Ricardo Álvarez. Elsewhere on Sunday Argentinos Juniors beat San Lorenzo deservedly 1-0, Independiente and Olimpo drew 1-1, and Racing continued an impressive campaign with a 2-0 win away to Newell’s Old Boys.
