BUENOS AIRES - Estudiantes beat River
Plate 1-0 on Saturday to take sole charge at the top of the
Argentine Clausura championship with three matches to go.
The South American champions have 33 points from 16 matches
after River defender Facundo Quiroga headed into his own goal
trying to clear a cross from winger Enzo Perez midway through
the first half.
Frustrated River, unable to repeat the winning performance
of new coach Angel Cappa's debut last weekend, had teenage
striker Daniel Villalva and defender Gustavo Cabral sent off in
the last three minutes, both for studs-up tackles.
Independiente fell two points behind after a 0-0 draw with
Huracan and joined Godoy Cruz, who beat Chacarita Juniors 1-0
on Friday, on 31.
Uruguayan striker Joaquin Boghossian scored twice as
sixth-placed Newell's Old Boys crushed Colon 5-0 in Rosario.
Estudiantes, fighting on two fronts, travel to Mexico in
midweek to meet San Luis in the first leg of their Libertadores
Cup first knockout round tie as they continue to defend their
South American title.
