Godoy Cruz join title race with Estudiantes victory

A single goal from Facundo Castillón was enough for Godoy Cruz to down Estudiantes 1-0 this afternoon, picking up three valuable points for both ends of the table as the Argentine season reaches its final stages.

The striker was on target 10 minutes from the end in a fiercely contested match, converting from close-range to give the Mendozans victory.

The Pincha, who are also in the running for the 2014 Final championship, had chances to take something from the encounter, but a lack of precision in front of goal cost Mauricio Pellegrino's side dearly and the La Plata club could not find a way through the determined visitors.

Godoy Cruz's win puts the Tomba up to second place in the Final with 28 points, leap-frogging Estudiantes -  who remain on 26 - and moving two points behind leaders Gimnasia, with three games to play. River Plate can overtake the club and join Gimnasia at the top if they win this evening away to Olimpo de Bahía Blanca.

The triumph is also vital for the Mendozans' aspirations of avoiding relegation. The club advance one place in the average points table used to calculate the drop, with an average of 1.252 points.
