Godoy Cruz recovered from their 4-1 mauling at the hands of Arsenal de Sarandí last weekend by beating Newell’s Old Boys 3-1 in Rosario on Friday night to move back into contention in the Torneo Clausura. On Saturday, Quilmes failed to win for the first time in a while – but still got a lateish goal to rescue a point against fellow relegation strugglers Gimnasia La Plata in a 2-2 draw. Olimpo beat Huracán 2-1 in Parque Patricios, and Tigre saw off Colón – who were previously undefeated away from home this year – 3-0. In the late game between Arsenal and Racing, three goals in the last ten minutes of the ninety left Racing with their second win in eight matches, 2-1. You can see all the goals right here.
