Estudiantes rout Arsenal 3-0

Estudiantes rout Arsenal 3-0

Mauro Boselli scored twice as Copa Libertadores champion Estudiantes beat Arsenal 3-0 at home in the Argentine league on Friday.
Earlier, striker Federico Higuain claimed the winner in the Clausura opener as Godoy Cruz edged Gimnasia La Plata 1-0.
Marcelo Carrusca deflected a low cross from Clemente Rodriguez at the back post to open the scoring for Estudiantes in the 41st minute.
Boselli notched the second in the 66th, rounding Arsenal goalkeeper Cristian Campestrini and rolling into an empty net.
Campestrini spilled a long-range shot shortly after and compounded the error by tripping Boselli in the box as the Estudiantes forward reacted quickest to the loose ball.
Boselli sent Campestrini the wrong way from the ensuing penalty in the 71st.
In Mendoza, second-half substitute Higuain forced a shot past goalkeeper Gaston Sessa in the 71st to give Godoy Cruz the win.
Godoy Cruz and Gimnasia are in danger of relegation and both clubs changed coaches ahead of the Clausura.
On Saturday it's Tigre vs. Chacarita Juniors, Racing Club vs. Rosario Central, Velez Sarsfield vs. Colon de Santa Fe, Atletico Tucuman vs. San Lorenzo. On Sunday, it's River Plate vs. Banfield, Newell's Old Boys vs. Independiente, Lanus vs. Huracan, Argentinos Juniors vs. Boca Juniors.
