Maxi Rodriguez headed the only goal of the game after 27 seconds as Newell's Old Boys beat Velez Sarsfield to return to the top of the Argentinian Apertura.
The former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid midfielder, back at his first club after a decade in Europe, raced to the far post to head a cross from the right flank beyond goalkeeper Marcelo Montoya.
Victory lifted Newell's two points ahead of Racing club and keeps them unbeaten through 10 games of the season.
