Estudiantes climbed to fifth in the table thanks to another two goals from full-back Matías Aguirregaray in a 2-0 win over Unión. The Uruguayan found space in the six-yard box at two first half set pieces to poke in his fifth and sixth goals of the season and it proved enough to take all three points.
A little later in Liniers, Vélez were unable to improve their current situation despite dominating large parts of their game against Quilmes. 23 shots on goal and 60% possession for the home side did not convert into goals and it ended goalless to the audible frustration of the supporters.
Estudiantes 2 – 0 Unión
Vélez Sarsfield 0 – 0 Quilmes
