Romero goal hands victory to Lanús

Lanús put their cup woes behind them with a winning start to the Transición Championship, prevailing 1-0 over Belgrano thanks to an early strike from Silvio Romero.

In a narrow match on which neither team managed to stamp their authority, the striker's goal after four minutes proved decisive for the team from southern Buenos Aires. The lead could have been greater for the hosts, but for Belgrano goalkeeper Juan Carlos Olave who saved Santiago Silva's penalty in the second half.

The three points come as a relief for the team coached by Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who suffered several reverses in cup competitions prior to the start of the league campaign.

Lanús were outclassed in the Recopa Sudamericana following a two-legged tie against Atlético Mineiro, and also lost to Japan's Kashiwa Reysol to miss out on the Suruga Bank cup.

But determined to put those negative results behind them, the club enjoyed the perfect start when Romero's neat finish saw him hit the net in his first match since returning to the Granate.

Belgrano never gave up in their hunt for an equaliser, but the creative deficiencies of the Córdoba team were all too evident as they showed more enthusiasm than precision throughout the 90 minutes.

Olave's save gave the Pirata a chance to fight back, but they could not take advantage and rarely troubled Agustín Marchesín in the Lanús net.
