August 13, 2012

Boca Juniors picked up their first victory of the Argentinian Apertura season on Sunday night with a 2-0 home success against Tigre.

Cristian Chavez and Lucas Viatri netted the goals in the space of nine minutes just after the hour to give Boca a welcome boost following their 3-0 opening loss at Quilmes.

Racing Club and Godoy Cruz also clinched their first three-point hauls after starting the campaign with respective draws against Atletico Rafaela and All Boys.

Second-half strikes from Fernando Ortiz and Adrian Centurion earned Racing a 2-0 triumph at Argentinos Juniors.

Nicolas Castro's strike 18 minutes from time handed Godoy a 1-0 win at 10-man Union Santa Fe, who slumped to their second straight loss after having Pablo Miguez sent off in the 37th minute.
