Lautaro MARTINEZ scored a hattrick for Racing Club while Argentinian international Ignacio SCOCCO was on target twice for River Plate.
With Argentina National Team coach Jorge SAMPAOLI (as well as a member from the Inter Milan team) present at the match, it was the Lautaro MARTINEZ show as the youngster scored three goals in Racing Club’s 4-0 win against Huracan. It’s been rumored for some time now that MARTINEZ would get called-up to the Argentina team (more specifically for the upcoming friendly matches against Italy and Spain next month) and with SAMPAOLI in attendance, he didn’t disappoint.
From a young 20 year old to a more experience 32 year old, Ignacio SCOCCO found the back of the net two times for River Plate and both were gems as Los Millonarios picked up a 2-0 win against Olimpo. The opening goal was a very well struck free kick, 56 minutes into the match. The second was nothing short of genius. A run you would have seen done by Diego MARADONA or in modern times Lionel MESSI, SCOCCO wiggled his way around the Olimpo team, rounded the goalkeeper and scored to double the lead.
