Vélez start with a late win over Tigre; Colón draw after early Racing goal (video)

Saturday’s last two Primera games of the day brought another five goals, all of which you can watch here. First, Tigre hosted Vélez Sarsfield in a match which featured two penalties – one for each side. Tigre’s was a bit soft, but Gastón Díaz took advantage to equalise after Lucas Pratto’s stunning opener from outside the box. Pratto got his revenge and handed Vélez the points, though, with a stoppage time penalty of his own as the guests won 2-1. In the last match, Racing midfielder Bruno Zuculini scored the earliest goal of the season so far to give them the lead just 2 minutes in. Colón equalised through Jacobo Mansilla in the 25th minute, and that was that.
