Argentina Primera: Boca Juniors and Lanús win, three draws on Sunday


The Argentina Primera continued on Sunday with five matches, three of which ended in draws.

Boca Juniors hosted Atletico Tucuman at home and despite Boca Juniors having much of the ball in the first half, it was Atletico Tucuman which nearly took the 1-0 lead.

A big save by Sergio Romero kept the score at 0-0 and minutes later Boca would take the lead. A pass into the penalty area by Villa found Oscar Romero who scored the only goal of the match to give Boca Juniors the win.

Lanús got the first win of the day against Colón. A cross into the penalty area found an unmarked Pedro de La Vega who scored to give Lanús the 1-0 lead. Colón would nearly draw level a few times but were unable to score at Lanús took a 1-0 lead going into half time.

A through ball in to Troyansky as he squared it to Franco Orozco who scored from close range and gave Lanús the 2-0 lead. Substitute Jorge Daniel Benitez got Colón’s only goal of the match and arguably the goal of the match with an effort from just inside the penalty area.

Platense and Newell’s played to a 2-2 draw and it was Newell’s who the early 1-0 lead. A kick from Hoyos, the Newell’s goalkeeper, found Gonzalez as he passed it to Ramiro Sordo for the open goal.

The hosts would draw level. Morgantini would score from close range as the ball would go through the legs of Hoyos for the goal. A handball by Platense as Gabriel Heinze’s team were awarded a penalty but Sordo saw his effort saved by Arce.

The second half would start at 1-1 and it was Platense who took the 2-1 lead. A blunder by the Newell’s goalkeeper inside the penalty area and as Baldassarra would score from close range.

Francisco Gonzalez would draw his team level through a blunder by the Platense goalkeeper. An initial shot was saved by Arce but he would give the rebound and Gonzalez would score.

The other two matches on Sunday also ended in draws. Instituto ACC and Sarmiento ended in a 0-0 draw as did Racing against Belgrano. Three matches close out Monday with Barracas Central hosting Godoy Cruz, Banfield hosting Union and Velez hosting Gimnasia.


  1. To be honest, Enzo to Chelsea is not so bad. He will be automatic starter.

    Chelsea also has improved in recent matches.

    They have American owners, you can expect them to be fair to their most expenses signing. Real could sign enzo for high amount, he would still be affected by French-Brazil politics.

    I am sure Enzo will start delivering from the first match. It is not about his skills and performances, it is his maturity and consistency at every level that makes him a 130 millions player.

  2. It seems like Enzo to Chelsea is closer than ever to be a “here we go”. Chelsea have made the offered that Benfica want. If Benfica says yes then, Enzo will be the most expensive signing of all time among Argentina players. Gaston Edul thinks the chance is very high. Duncan Castles says it is done. Fab Romano says it is getting very close.

    • But UCL knock outs are on the way and I see Benfica as dark horses like Villareal in the last season with Enzo leading from the front. If Chelsea move is done means it is a missed opportunity for Enzo to showcase his talent more to the world. And in Chelsea yeah he has to again start from the beginning.

      • Benfica will make more money by selling Enzo to Chelsea than winning the cup itself. Additionally, Enzo will be making a lot more and play for a team that has deep pockets to challenge any team in the world.
