Estudiantes keep up perfect start to Final

Estudiantes de la Plata remain at the top of the Torneo Final after three games with a narrow 2-1 victory over Lanús, meaning that the side coached by Mauricio Pellegrini is the only team to preserve a 100 percent record at the start of the season.

The Pincha enjoyed a flying start in the Estadio Único, taking the lead after just nine minutes through Guido Carrillo. Lanús fought back, however, and after a series of smart saves from Geronimo Rulli the keeper was finally unable to keep out Santiago Silva's rebound for the equaliser.

The goal provoked the ire of home fans and players, coming in the fifth minute of added time before the break. But Estudiantes would not have to wait long to put themselves back on top.

Victor Ayala impeded the march of Leandro Desabato at a free-kick, resulting in a penalty for the hosts. Carrillo stepped up to hit his second of the evening, assuring nine points out of nine for the in-form La Plata side.

Elsewhere, San Lorenzo continued their recovery from an indifferent start to the season with an accomplished 2-0 victory over Argentinos Juniors.

Goals from Leandro Romagnoli and Mauro Matos, one in each half, proved the difference for the Cuervo, who record two consecutive victories following a 1-0 triumph over Racing at the weekend.

In a relegation six-pointer, meanwhile, a stunning effort from Gabriel Graciani spoiled Ricardo Caruso Lombardi's return as Quilmes coach, the Cervecero going down 2-0 to Colón in their own stadium.
