Primera action for 2016 drew to a close on Monday evening and while neither match provided the goals or the excitement of some earlier in the weekend, at least one could have huge implications on the relegation battle. Temperley’s situation is critical and on Monday, El Gasolero made the short journey to Quilmes, who themselves had been dragged right back into the thick of trouble after three consecutive defeats. The home side had shaded proceedings but as the game was edging towards a goalless draw, Los Cerveceros nicked it. Gastón Bojanich missed his clearance and it allowed Gabriel Ramírez to fire past Matías Ibáñez and claim all three points.
Later in Victoria, Atlético Tucumán held Tigre to a goalless draw but will have left the Estadio José Dellagiovanna thinking that they should have had more. José Méndez had a second half goal controversially chalked off for a handball only seconds after the visitors had claimed a penalty for the same offence. Both decisions went in favour of Tigre and it ultimately earned Pedro Troglio’s side a point.
Quilmes 1 – 0 Temperley
Tigre 0 – 0 Atlético Tucumán
