Highlights: Argentinos Juniors 1-0 Newell’s

Newell’s Old Boys were forced to play with ten men for 49 minutes in the second-half after Jonatan Cristaldo saw red for a high boot on Kevin Mac Allister. Although the Newell’s defence held strong right until the end, an 87th minute scrappy winner from Lucas Villalba won it for the home side.

It was a game with its fair shares of controversy and drama, especially in the second-half. Nicolás Reniero of Argentinos Juniors won the early prize for miss of the season in injury-time while Newell’s surrounded the referee after the game to protest that the linesman had flagged for offside in the 91st minute despite the ball hitting an Argentinos player last before Pablo Sabbag looked to be through on goal for an equaliser.
