Lanus go top in Argentina

Estudiantes 0 – Velez Sarsfield 1 (Clausura, March 6, 2009) Estudiantes’ Matias Sanchez was dismissed on the half hour mark after collecting a second yellow card and it proved decisive as Dario Ocampo settled the encounter six minutes later.

Lanus 2 – Newells Old Boys 1 (Clausura, March 6, 2009) Hernan Bernardello put Newell’s ahead with just three minutes on the clock when he rifled home from outside the box but the hosts equalised almost immediately through Matias Fritzler. Sebastian Salomon then set-up forward Jose Sand to net the winner early in the second half and send Lanus top.
