Saturday Superliga highlights: Arsenal thrash Central, Godoy Cruz beat Argentinos and a Libertadores stalemate

Saturday’s Superliga matches began with Godoy Cruz coming from behind to claim a 2-1 away win over Argentinos Juniors which means that while Boca Juniors are still red hot favourites for the title, they won’t win it this weekend; Godoy Cruz go level on points with Boca, who have two games more to play (the first of which will be at home to Unión on Sunday afternoon). At the same time as that match was taking place, there was a shock as Arsenal de Sarandí – who were relegated weeks ago – thrashed Rosario Central 4-0 in the Viaducto, perhaps helped on their way a little by a red card for Central’s Mauricio Martínez half an hour in. Newell’s Old Boys kept up their excellent recent home record to record their fourth straight win in the Estadio Marcelo Bielsa, beating Defensa y Justicia 1-0 with a finely taken goal from Alexis Rodríguez. In Córdoba, there was a clash of Copa Libertadores hopefuls as Talleres, who started the game in sixth, hosted Huracán in fourth. That game ended 0-0, meaning the hosts go fifth overnight, pending Independiente’s match against Gimnasia on Sunday. The final game of the day saw Lucas Mancinelli grab a late equaliser with a free kick for relegated Olimpo to claim a 1-1 draw away to Atlético Tucumán.
