The Argentine Primera Division looks set for an exciting climax to the season after league leaders Newell's Old Boys failed to capitalise on weekend slip-ups by their nearest title rivals, going down to a 2-1 defeat away at All Boys.

Jonathan Ferrari was the toast of the Islas Malvinas Stadium terraces in Floresta, Buenos Aires on Monday evening, after his acrobatic overhead kick goal put the hosts ahead in the 35th minute.

Newell's goalkeeper Nahuel Guzman flapped at a left-wing cross, leaving his goal completely unguarded, allowing the 26-year-old defender to convert into an empty net.

All Boys doubled their lead on the hour mark when another defender, Maximiliano Coronel met a free-kick with his head, looping a shot over the helpless Guzman.

The visitors pulled a goal back with 12 minutes remaining through Milton Casco, the left-back tapping in from close-range after All Boys goalkeeper Nicolas Cambiasso parried a shot by Maxi Rodriguez.

However, it wasn't enough to prevent a defeat that leaves Newell's Old Boys just three points clear at the top of the table with 32 points, with River Plate and Lanus in second and third place after both clubs failed to win on Sunday.
