Banfield beat Argentinos in 82-minute match

BUENOS AIRES - Argentine champions Banfield beat Argentinos Juniors 3-0 in an 82-minute match on Wednesday, completing a fixture suspended by rain three weeks ago.

The match, corresponding to the second round of the Clausura championship, lasted only eight minutes on February 3 before a torrential downpour forced the referee to declare the pitch unplayable. There was no score at the time.

The victory lifted Banfield, winners of the Apertura championship in December, into third place with 10 points from five matches, one point behind joint leaders Velez Sarsfield and Colon.
