Estudiantes claimed the Argentina Apertura title on Sunday, scoring two goals in the final 15 minutes to defeat Arsenal 2-0.
Estudiantes went ahead 1-0 in the 75th on a goal awarded to Gaston Fernandez, though a television replay suggested he was not the last to touch it. Rodrigo Lopez ended all doubt in the 87th, looping in a header from 10 meters (yards) over leaping Arsenal keeper Cristian Campestrini. Lopez also appeared to be the scorer of the first goal.
Estudiantes finished with 45 points, two more than Velez in 19 matches. Velez defeated Racing 2-0 on Sunday in a match played at the same time.
With Velez winning, and Estudiantes only managing a draw until late in the game, the championship seemed to be headed to a one-game playoff to decide the title.
