Racing Club striker Lautaro Martinez struck his fifth goal in three matches but his team could only manage a 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened Chacarita Juniors in the Superliga Argentina. Juan Imbert opened the scoring for the visitors when he latched onto an errant backward pass by Gonzalo Piova and, after some skilful dribbling, fired a low shot past Racing goalkeeper Juan Musso on Saturday, reports Xinhua news agency.

Martinez equalised with an easy tap-in after a Pablo Cuadra cross.

The 20-year-old has now netted 10 times in nine matches across all competitions for Racing this year as he stakes a claim for a berth in Argentina's squad for this year's World Cup in Russia.

Saturday's result at Chacarita Juniors stadium in Buenos Aires left Racing to the sixth in the 28-team standings while Chacarita remained in the 26th position.
