BUENOS AIRES, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Guido Mainero and Federico Andueza scored first-half goals as Sarmiento clinched a 2-1 away win over River Plate in Argentina's Primeira Division on Sunday.

Mainero put the visitors ahead just after the half-hour mark with a low finish after Fernando Martinez's through ball.

Andueza headed in Sarmiento's second goal following Mainero's delivery from a corner on the stroke of halftime.
