Argentinos Juniors defeated Arsenal de Sarandí 1-0, in the opening of the second date of the Championship Phase of the Diego Maradona Cup.
El Bicho triumphed by the minimum, with a goal from Gabriel Hauche, at the end of the first half, to be the leader of Zone A, with 4 points.
The match was very balanced in the handling of the ball and the scoring actions, but the difference was made by the Argentinos striker, who won in the area with a great deflection and scored the goal that made the match uneven.
In the second half, the local looked for a tie on all sides and was close to achieving it a couple of times, but failed in the definition.
Diego Davobe’s men reach four points in Zone A and momentarily surpassed Huracán at the top of the table, with one more game.
This group is completed by Boca (1) who visits Independiente (1) and River (1) who will do the same against Globo (3). Both games will be played this Sunday.
On the next date, Argentinos will receive Independiente and Arsenal will visit River.
