The first of the two Argentine leagues this season kicked off last night, with reigning Apertura champions Estudiantes getting off a winiing start, defeating Banfield 3-0, with Juan Sebastian Veron among the scorers.

In the other game, Velez Sarsfield beat Colon de Sanra Fe 1-0, thanks to a early second half strike from Damian Escudero.
