Federico Rasic’s second-half brace secured the three points for Gimnasia after Belgrano took an early lead through Jorge Valazquez.
The home fans were delighted when Valazquez gave Belgrano an unexpected advantage after only six minutes.

The striker then set up Rasic for his brace in the 71st minute as Gimnasia kept their 100 per cent record alive.
