Sunday brought five matches and eleven goals in the Superliga. In the 11am kick off, there was unusually low score, with Huracán beating Tigre 2-0 to cement their continental qualification hopes. At (late) lunchtime, goals from Brian Mansilla and Lautaro Martínez helped Racing win against their manager Eduardo Coudet’s old club, Rosario Central, 2-0, before a less than thrilling affair in Tucumán ended Atlético 0-0 Unión. In late afternoon, goalkeeper Franco Armani was the only regular starter to kick off for River Plate away to long-ago relegated Arsenal de Sarandí, but they got a 3-0 win anyway thanks to first half strikes from Exequiel Palacios and Fernando Quintero, as well as an own goal from Claudio Corvalán. And in the evening, Boca Juniors took a huge step towards a second consecutive league title by beating Newell’s Old Boys 3-1 in the Bombonera, with Ramón Ábila grabbing a brace.
