A victory would have given River the joint lead with Estudiantes, which has won its first two matches to open the Clausura season, the second tournament of Argentina's split season.

Manuel Lanzini scored in the third minute for River Plate, with Carlos Luna equalizing in the 28th.

Boca Juniors is still searching for its first win of the season following a 3-2 home defeat by Belgrano.

Belgrano Cordoba also have one win and a draw after coming from behind to win 3-2 at Boca Juniors.

Juan Forlin put the hosts in front after seven minutes, but Belgrano turned the match around in the second half.

Emiliano Rigoni equalised two minutes after the break, Luciano Lollo made it 2-1 with a 65th-minute penalty and Cesar Pereyra added a third in the 90th minute.

Joel Acosta struck even later to make it 3-2, but it was too little too late for Boca. 

In other results Sunday it was: Gimnasia 3, Newell's 0; Lanus 0, Atletico Rafaela 3.

Newell's has only one point from two matches, and Arsenal and Quilmes have lost their first two.

On Saturday it was: All Boys 0, Estudiantes 1; Arsenal 1, Velez Sarsfield 3; Tigre 0, Olimpo 0; Colon 1, Argentinos Juniors 0; San Lorenzo 1, Racing Club 0.

Godoy Cruz defeated Quilmes on Friday 2-0.
