A championship definition is coming as it has not happened for a long time, with eight teams that still have concrete aspirations to consecrate themselves. Atlético Tucumán leads with a two-point advantage, but with only eight points behind, the others are tight and still 21 units remain in dispute. Over, in the seven remaining dates there will be eight hand in hand between those who fight, duels that will undoubtedly leave some on the road and strengthen the winners in the final stretch. Who will get plate?
The first of the key duels for the definition of the tournament will be this Friday, when Boca (3rd) visits Godoy Cruz (7th) in Mendoza. The one with the most difficult fixture is Argentines (8th), who still have to face four of the teams they have above (River, Huracán, Godoy Cruz and Gimnasia)but beware that if he wins, he gets fully into the fight…
The eight who fight above.
In that sense, those with fewer of these direct crosses are Atlético Tucumán (Racing) and Huracán (Argentines), with one each, but we must bear in mind that the Globe will also face the classic against San Lorenzo, a separate game always. And on the last date there will be another tremendous derby in Avellaneda between Racing (4th) and River (6th).
The crosses of those who fight above
This Friday: Godoy Cruz – Boca.
Date 21: Godoy Cruz-Boca stands out. The seventh today against the third, in Mendoza. With selection losses for the FIFA date, Xeneize can regain the top of the tournament while Tomba is playing a key duel so as not to be relegated in the fight.
Date 22: beyond the classic San Lorenzo-Huracán, the main course will be the duel between Argentinos and River in La Paternal. Two teams with title aspirations that are already virtually bound to win everything they have left.
Date 23: a game that smells like a great match that can define important things in the championship. It will be the one that Gimnasia-Boca will hold in La Plata.
Date 24: It will not be one the main course but two. On the one hand, Racing-Atlético Tucumán. On the other, Argentinos-Hurricane.
Date 25: It will be necessary to see how they arrive but it could be a nice encounter between Godoy Cruz and Argentinos in Mendoza.
Date 26: Gymnastics-Argentines, in theory, is presented as the most interesting meeting of the day.
On the last date, Racing-River.
Date 27: It will be the last day and, from the outset, it has two classics: Racing-River and Boca-Independiente. Will any be decisive for the title?
