Banfield beat Colón with a 2-1 victory on Sunday at Florencio Sola. Banfield were looking for a victory after a scoreless draw against Atlético Tucumán in their previous match while Colón were beaten 2-1 in their previous match against Boca. Banfield and Colón currently occupy 21st and 24th spots in the league, with 19 points and 18 points respectively after 18 matches.

Colón started the first half well, when Facundo Farias gave them the lead on the 16 minute mark. However, their lead was short-lived, as Aaron Quiros equalised for Banfield just before half-time. The score at break remained 1-1.

Banfield rallied after this and were rewarded, when Juan Manuel Cruz found the net, 80 minutes in. The match ended with a 2-1 win for Banfield.

Substitutions for Banfield included Juan Manuel Cruz, Lautaro Rios, Jose Alvarez, Erik Lopez and Nicolas Domingo for Matias Romero, Jesus Datolo, Aaron Quiros, Matias Gonzalez and Julian Palacios, respectively. Colón brought on Leonel Picco, Juan Pablo Alvarez, Santiago Pierotti and Tomas Sandoval, to replace Julian Chicco, Baldomero Perlaza, Cristian Bernardi and Facundo Farias.
