Friday evening brought two 1-0 away wins in fairly unremarkable matches for two teams playing in red and black. Colón started the evening off, with a win against San Martín thanks to a second half goal from former All Boys and San Lorenzo forward Emanuel Gigliotti. After that, Newell’s Old Boys beat Lanús with an early Mauricio Sperdutti strike. You can see both goals here.
San Martín 0 – 1 Colón
Lanús 0 – 1 Newell’s
