Talleres Cordoba extended their unbeaten start to the season after last weekend’s 2-0 win away against Rosario Central.

They now face a difficult test at home to third-placed, Velez Sarsfield, who have the league’s top goal-scorer in Zarate Rolando David, with seven in six games.

Boca Juniors stayed in second-place after their 4-1 thrashing of Racing Club. Racing had taken an early lead through Nicolas Burdisso before two goals from Gillermo Barros Schelotto and one each from Jose Maria Calvo and Javier Villarreal sealed a convincing win for Boca.

The other unbeaten team is Nueva Chicago, who lie in fifth and have an easier match this weekend against Gimnasia y Esgrima LP who languish in fifteenth with only one win so far this season.

Carlos Bilardo, remains in charge of Estudiantes LP despite some bizarre behaviour in last month’s match against River Plate. After seeing his side lose their opening two games, the Argentinian coach put his players through an 11-hour training session, conducted to pop music.

The former coach of the Argentinian national team followed this by watching his side’s match against River Plate from behind a small table in front of the dugout, on which he had placed a radio and a champagne bottle, complete with its own ice bucket.

Estudiantes lost their last match 0-1 to Colon de Santa Fe, but still lie in mid-table after seven games and host San Lorenzo, who are just four places above them in the league, this weekend.
