Estudiantes La Plata beated Racing Club 1-0 on Saturday at Estadio Ciudad de La Plata. Estudiantes were looking for a victory after a scoreless draw against CA Platense in their previous match. Racing, meanwhile, had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 1-0 victory against Argentinos Juniors. Estudiantes and Racing are 11th, (26 points) and 8th, (28 points), in the table respectively, after 18 matches.

The first half of the match started well for Estudiantes, when Mauro Boselli gave them the lead in the 30th minute, finishing the first half 1-0. Both teams unable to deliver anything further, the score remained at 1-0 at full time.

Substitutions for Estudiantes included Leandro Diaz, Leonardo Heredia, Nehuen Paz and Hernan Toledo for Mauro Boselli, Franco Zapiola, Manuel Castro and Mauro Mendez, respectively. Racing brought on Emiliano Vecchio, Johan Carbonero, Maximiliano Romero and Jonathan Galvan, to replace Edwin Cardona, Gabriel Hauche, Facundo Mura and Eugenio Mena.

The referee booked Mauro Mendez, Leandro Diaz and Jorge Morel from Estudiantes. Racing had the worst of it though, with Anibal Moreno, Emiliano Insua, Gabriel Arias and Jonathan Gomez seeing yellow, and Johan Carbonero and Carlos Alcaraz then sent off with a red.

Estudiantes will next travel to Rosario Central, while Racing will face Patronato at home.
