Boca beat Lanús with a 1-0 victory on Thursday at Estadio Ciudad de Lanus. Lanús were looking to get back to winning ways after losing 2-0 to Barracas C. in their previous fixture. Boca were hoping to continue their winning streak after back-to-back victories against River and Colón. Lanús are now in 28th place, with 11 points from 19 matches, while Boca sit in 1st, with 35 points from 19.

Following a goalless first half, Boca continued to apply pressure in the second period and were rewarded, when Dario Benedetto found the net just before the full time, leaving the final score at 1-0.

Substitutions for Lanús included Mateo Sanabria, Samuel Careaga, Franco Orozco, Jose Sand and Julian Aude for Franco Troyansky, Lautaro Acosta, Luciano Boggio, Brian Blando and Nicolas Pasquini, respectively.
