Live: Watch the Clásico de Avellaneda here


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.

Independiente: Diego Rodríguez; Gustavo Toledo, Hernán Pellerano, Víctor Cuesta, Nicolás Tagliafico; Jorge Ortíz, Diego Rodríguez; Matías Pisano, Cristián Rodríguez, Martín Benítez; Diego Vera

Racing: Sebastián Saja; Ivan Pillud, Luciano Lollo, Nicolás Sánchez, Leandro Grimi; Gastón Díaz, Francisco Cerro, Luciano Aued, Marcos Acuña; Óscar Romero; Gustavo Bou
