The first clásico platense in the new Estadio Único de La Plata didn’t feature Juan Sebastián Verón, but his team won anyway, 2-0, thanks to Gastón Fernández and Enzo Pérez, the latter from the penalty spot. Racing, meanwhile, took a 4-0 lead over Olimpo, but being Racing they conceded three in seven minutes to leave them happy to scrape a 4-3 win to go top of the league. And in an equally silly game, Newell’s Old Boys and Huracán drew 3-3 in Rosario. All the goals are right here.
Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata 0 – 2 Club Estudiantes de La Plata
Newell’s Old Boys 3 – 3 Huracán
Racing Club 4 – 3 Club Olimpo
