Racing wins 1-0 vs Argentinos, goes 2nd in table

Unbeaten Racing Club moved into second place in the Argentine Apertura tournament standings after Giovanni Moreno's second-half header secured a 1-0 home win over Argentinos Juniors.
Moreno climbed highest to direct a downward header into the net from a deep free kick in the 55th minute as Racing ended a run of five successive draws.
Racing moved to 24 points from 14 games, seven points behind Boca Juniors, which has a game in hand atop the standings.
Boca visits reigning champion Velez Sarsfield on Sunday and hosts Racing in the next round of fixtures in the 19-match tournament.
Also Saturday, Tigre beat Colon 2-1 to move to 21 points and Godoy Cruz extended its unbeaten home record with a 3-1 victory over Estudiantes.
