Godoy Cruz moved up to second in the Argentinian Apertura after edging out San Martin San Juan 1-0.

David Ramirez scored the only goal of the game in the 27th minute as Godoy Cruz went level on points with league leaders Boca Juniors, who have a game in hand.

Following their sixth defeat of the season, San Martin remain one place above bottom side Union Santa Fe on three points after seven games.

Martin Galmarini's strike rescued a point for Tigre, who drew 2-2 at home with fourth-placed Colon Santa Fe.


Ezequiel Maggiolo had given the hosts an 18th-minute lead but strikes from Lucas Mugni (41) and Ruben Ramirez (58) turned the game on its head.

Galmarini struck in the 67th minute, however, to claim a share of the spoils for Tigre, who have now drawn four of their opening seven matches.

Maximiliano Nunez's 52nd-minute goal gave Estudiantes a 1-0 triumph at Racing Club, while Anangono Leon struck two minutes from time as Argentinos Juniors were victorious by the same margin at All Boys.
