Estudiantes have been consistently inconsistent throughout 2015 but Saturday evening’s victory against Unión in La Plata confired Gabi Milito’s side will be in the Copa Libertadores playoff. Juan Sánchez Miño tapped in the opener defender Jonathan Schunke headed in a second on the half hour mark to all but end the contest. Unión never looked like finding a way back into the match but with their place in the Sudamericana playoff already confirmed there was little incentive.
Banfield require a remarkable series of results to sneak a Libertadores spot but maintained their part of the bargain by defeating Olimpo in Bahía Blanca. Maximiliano Calzada rifled El Taladro in front after just two minutes and although Joel Amoroso poked in an equaliser Sergio Vittor’s heavily deflected long range effort won it for the visitors.
