Banfield spoil San Lorenzo homecoming

San Lorenzo fans were unable to celebrate the club's first home match since lifting the Copa Libertadores with a win, as goals from Santiago Salcedo and Juan Cazares condemned the Cuervo to a 2-0 defeat in the Nuevo Gasometro.

The reverse marks a second straight loss for the Bajo Flores team, who also went down 2-0 to Racing after downing Nacional to win their first-ever Libertadores crown.

Banfield, looking for their first victory following promotion from the B Nacional, took the advantage just three minutes into the second half, when Paraguayan striker Salcedo fired home. Victory was confirmed in injury time, as San Lorenzo poured forward in search of an equaliser, thanks to Cazares' spectacular strike from outside the area.

The result means that Edgardo Bauza's men remain on 0 points so far in the Transición tournament, albeit with a game in hand due to their continental exploits.

The Taladro's rivals in the south of Greater Buenos Aires, Lanús, also tasted victory as two goals from Victor Ayala helped them to a 2-1 win over Estudiantes.

The Paraguayan struck in both halves to down the La Plata club, who had fought their way back into the game thanks to Joaquín Correa's free-kick.

Defensa y Justicia and Quilmes, meanwhile, tied 1-1 with Washington Camacho and Brian Sarmiento on target for the two clubs from the 'South Zone' of Buenos Aires.
