    12 de agosto de 2018

    Buenos Aires, Aug 12 (efe-epa).- Gimnasia and Esgrima La Plata and Union de Santa Fe started their Superliga Argentina campaigns this weekend with wins.

    On Saturday, Gimnasia beat Argentinos Juniors 1-0 on a goal by Mauro Maidana, while Union defeated Aldosivi 1-0 with the tally by Franco Soldano.

    In other action, Patronato and Colon battled to a scoreless draw, the same result in the Belgrano-San Martin de San Juan match.

    On Friday, on the first day of play in the Argentine Superliga, Velez Sarsfield defeated Newell's Old Boys 2-0, while Tigre and San Lorenzo tied at 2-2.

    Meanwhile, on Sunday, current champs Boca Juniors will welcome Talleres de Cordoba, while River Plate will visit Huracan.

    The other three Sunday matches include Godoy Cruz-Estudiantes, Lanus-Defensa and Justicia vs. Rosario Central-Banfield, while on Monday Atletico Tucuman and Racing Club will cross paths.

    The only match that had to be rescheduled was the one between Independiente and the recently-ascended San Martin de Tucuman, given that the Reds returned to Buenos Aires from Tokyo, where last Wednesday they won the Suruga Bank Cup.
