One of the biggest matches in Argentine football and with a place in the Copa Libertadores on the line, Independiente host Racing. El Rojo won 3-0 when the two sides met here in September but there is far greater significance in this fixture. Racing are without iconic striker Diego Milito after his red card against Estudiantes while Independiente reshuffle after the suspension of Jesús Méndez and the injury to captain Federico Mancuello.
