The fifteenth round of Superliga matches is underway, and the weekend got off to a promising start when Defensa y Justicia put four past relegation-threatened Chacarita Juniors. It wasn’t all plain sailing; after taking a 3-0 lead they almost threw it away by letting two goals in, before finally putting the game beyond doubt in stoppage time. Elsewhere, Unión and Arsenal de Sarandí drew 0-0 in Santa Fe, and Colón got a 1-0 away win over Newell’s Old Boys which leaves Newell’s boss Juan Manuel Llop hanging by a thread after some poor results and increasingly directionless performances this season.

Defensa y Justicia 4-2 Chacarita Juniors
