Inicial 2013: four goals but no winners from Saturday’s two matches (video)

Saturday featured just two matches in the Primera División, and both ended in 1-1 draws following late goals. First up, Olimpo were held by Belgrano in Bahía Blanca, shooting themselves in the foot after taking the lead with just twelve minutes to play. Later in the evening, Arsenal de Sarandí conceded a stoppage time equaliser away to Rosario Central, with legendary Uruguayan journeyman Sebastián Abreu pouncing on a rare goalkeeping slip-up from Cristian Campestrini. All four goals are here.

Olimpo 1-1 Belgrano

Olimpo fell asleep here, and it cost them their second win of the campaign; after Ezequiel Cerutti had fired them into a late lead, it took Belgrano just a couple of minutes to get back on level terms thanks to Carlos Bueno’s header.

Rosario Central 1-1 Arsenal de Sarandí

Arsenal took an early lead in Rosario, thanks to Jonathan Gómez, and looked comfortable on it for most of the game, but as Central started to throw more and more forward as the second half wore on, Campestrini became a key player for the visitors. When he failed to hold a shot two minutes into stoppage time, Abreu was on hand to slam home the rebound. A minute later, the Uruguayan could have won the game for Central, but Campestrini made a better job of his save.
