BUENOS AIRES, Feb 5 (Reuters) - League champions Lanus won the Argentine Supercup by beating Copa Argentina holders River Plate 3-0 this weekend, but the resumption of the country’s first division championship was postponed.
Goals in the last 20 minutes from winger Lautaro Acosta, substitute Nicolas Pasquini and former River striker Pepe Sand gave Lanus the title in the match played in La Plata on Saturday.
The 2016/17 championship, which went into a summer recess before Christmas, was scheduled to resume this weekend but has been put back indefinitely due to leadership and financial squabbles at the Argentine FA.
Boca Juniors are top of the standings with 31 points from 14 matches, three points ahead of Newell’s Old Boys and San Lorenzo. (Writing by Rex Gowar; Editing by Toby Davis)
