Highlights: Independiente 0-2 Newell’s

Newell’s Old Boys bounced back from the defeat at Central Córdoba to record an impressive victory away at Independiente on Tuesday night.

Cristian Ferreira’s first-half placed effort was nearly followed up by a second from Jorge Recalde but for VAR ruling that Ángelo Martino had committed a foul before helping to assist the goal. This decision sparked anger in Newell’s manager Gabriel Heinze who was red-carded for his dissent.

Newell’s continued to push in the second-half and secured a second goal when Gustavo Velázquez’s header was deflected into the Independiente net by Edgar Elizalde.

A rare away victory for La Lepra pushes Heinze’s side up one position to 12th in the Liga Profesional table.
