Tigre beats Olimpo to join leaders

Tigre moved level at the top of the Argentinian Clausura table with a 1-0 home win over Olimpo.

Martin Galmarini scored the game’s only goal on 40 minutes although Tigre had to hold onto its advantage with 10 men after Mariano Echeverria was sent off a minute later.

Olimpo also lost a man late on, following Gabriel Diaz’s 85th-minute dismissal, as Tigre joined Boca Juniors and Newell’s Old Boys at the top, albeit having played a game more.
