River Plate, Rosario Central struggle to 1-1 draw in Argentina
BEUNOS AIRES, Argentina - River Plate missed out on claiming a share of the Argentine league lead after struggling to a 1-1 draw with Rosario Central on Sunday.

Manuel Lanzini scored in the third minute for River Plate, with Carlos Luna equalizing in the 28th.
In other results Sunday it was: Gimnasia 3, Newell's 0; Lanus 0, Atletico Rafaela 3.
