On Friday night, Atlético Rafaela and Newell’s Old Boys got the sixth round of the 2011 Torneo Apertura started with a goalless draw which means Rafaela could be overtaken at the top of the league this weekend. Later on, Colón ended a long run without a home win by finally getting a victory in the Cementerio de los Elefantes, beating San Lorenzo 3-1. That result means San Lorenzo could conceivably drop into the relegation playoff places in the Promedio table later in the weekend, after other sides have played. The goals are right here.
Colón 3 – 1 San Lorenzo
