River Plate beat Newell’s on the last game of the match and took it to the top of the Professional League. Martín Demichelis’ side won thanks to Pablo Solari’s goal in the 95th minute and extended the distance with their biggest pursuers.
It is that San Lorenzo, his escort, and Talleres, the third in the table, clashed in Cordoba and did not go beyond a goalless draw. The tie moved them away from the Cyclone and the T at six and nine points respectively. With the same points as the Cordoba team, Defensa y Justicia and Belgrano de Córdoba, who have just beaten Instituto and Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.
With five games still to play, Rosario Central will be looking to join the San Lorenzo line this Monday. El Canalla will visit Atlético Tucumán from 9:30 p.m. At the same time, Lanús will face Godoy Cruz in Mendoza and will also try to get the three points to be in the third place team.
Although River Plate has been cut at the top, parity in the Professional League is maintained since between third and fifteenth place, there are thirteen teams separated by only five points.
As for the fight below, the other three matches of the day will be of paramount importance in this regard. Platense and Colón will host a duel of people in need in the fight not to be relegated, as will Banfield against Central Córdoba de Santiago del Estero and Sarmiento de Junín vs. Arsenal.
Although the local tournament hasn’t reached the middle of the competition yet, there are two more tables that are starting to take shape. One of them is that of the averages and today the two that would lose the category are Sarmiento and Arsenal, while the Union would be added by the accumulated. The annual table with the rankings for the international cups for now takes the list of the current league as a reference and once the League Cup has started there will be a clearer picture.
