There is just a little bit of this date 22, then three more days, and we will definitely know who will play the next Copa Libertadores, the most important tournament in our continent. There are some classifieds who were anticipated at the end of the tournament and others who are still with the calculator in hand and looking at the fixture. Remember that there are six places: the two champions (Colón and River?) Enter, the one who wins the Argentine Cup and the three best in the general table. On Ole we do a review with the one x one of those who are in the fight.
The general table and those who fight to enter the Libertadores.
RIVER (70 POINTS, RANKED)
River has already qualified for the next Libertadores.
Gallardo’s team is just one point away from being crowned champion and has four games to go. 99% sure that you will get your place to the next Libertadores by that route. But, in the event of a possible tragedy and that Talleres ends up as leader, River would still enter the general table.
What is missing: Racing (L), Rosario Central (V), Defensa y Justicia (L) and Atlético Tucumán (V).
VÉLEZ (69 POINTS, RANKED)
Pratto goal, victory and qualification for Vélez.
El Fortín defeated Argentinos 2-0 on Tuesday night and secured their spot in the next Copa Libertadores. Although there are several dates left, there are not enough teams that can overcome it in the general classification. Vélez had been the club that had added the most points in the first half (Colón finished as champion after the playoffs) and maintained a great performance in the second.
What is missing: Students (V), Board of Trustees (L) and Platense (V).
Talleres fell against Gimnasia but still has great chances to qualify.
The Cordobans suffered a hard setback on Tuesday afternoon, when they fell 5-2 against Gimnasia and thus were practically without a chance to fight River’s title to the end. It is impossible to imagine him entering the Libertadores that way, but he still has two variants: through the general table or through the Argentine Cup, where he must still face Godoy Cruz in the semifinals and then Boca in the final.
What is missing: Aldosivi (L), Sarmiento (V) and Independiente (L).
COLÓN (60 POINTS, RANKED)
Colón entered by winning the first championship of the year.
With the Sabalero there is not much turn to give. Although he is among the best in the general table, he was the first classified for having conquered the last tournament.
What is missing: Rosario Central (L), Defense and Justice (V), Atlético Tucumán (L) and Unión (V).
MOUTH (58 POINTS)
Boca takes hold and needs a few more points to ensure its place.
The Xeneize began to lift strongly since the arrival of Battaglia, adding vital points to climb the general table. Today he is inside, since inevitably River or Workshops are going to free one more quota, whoever wins this tournament wins. In any case, it also has the variant of the Argentine Cup, where it is in the final and needs one more step to win the place of Libertadores.
What is missing: Independiente (V), Newell’s (L), Arsenal (V) and Central Córdoba (L).
El Pincha won the last two games and dreams.
The Pincha had been going through a terrible run of results and it seemed that it was falling, but it got up with two wins in the last two games and, if Boca or Talleres won the Argentine Cup, today it would be the last to enter the next Libertadores.
What is missing: Vélez (L), Gimnasia (V) and Aldosivi (L).
Lanús still dreams.
He has three points and one game less than Estudiantes, but in any case due to a goal difference he could not reach Pincha even if he defeated Platense this Thursday. The Grana needs yes or yes to obtain better results than those of La Plata in the three remaining dates.
What is missing: Platense (L), Racing (V), Rosario Central (L) and Defensa y Justicia (V).
INDEPENDENT (51 POINTS)
The Red of Falcioni lowered the performance and has it complicated.
Although mathematically Red can still enter the next Libertadores, today it seems like a utopia. He left many points on the road in the last time although this Wednesday he has a key duel against Boca in Avellaneda. If you defeat the Xeneize, you can start looking at the table with different eyes.
What is missing: Boca (L), Banfield (V), San Lorenzo (L) and Talleres (V).
