Newell’s Old Boys finally broke their goalscoring drought in the league away to Tigre on Sunday night and perhaps will feel aggrieved not to have left Buenos Aires with all three points.
The opening minutes of the match were frantic with Brian Aguirre putting The Lepers in-front after just 2 minutes. Tigre scored a quick-fire double to take the lead with just a quarter of an hour gone with Colidio’s penalty followed by Luciatti’s header putting them in the ascendency.
The score remained 2-1 for a large chunk of the game, not for a lack of Newell’s chances, before substitute Cristian Ferreira popped up with just four minutes remaining to get on the end of a long ball from Juan Sforza and carefully head the ball over Gonzalo Marinelli in the Tigre net.
