Argentinos fans show their joy (yes, the man in the green shirt really is happy) at their goal against Estudiantes

Sunday’s results saw Estudiantes de La Plata go top of the 2012 Torneo Clausura thanks to a 2-1 away win over Argentinos Juniors. Boca Juniors drew 2-2 with Lanús, and Arsenal de Sarandí became the first team to beat Tigre in 2012, ensuring that their visitors wouldn’t capitalise on San Lorenzo’s loss on Saturday in the relegation table. Elsewhere, Colón beat Independiente 3-0 at home. All the goals are right here.

Argentinos 1 – 2 Estudiantes
