Racing Club still have work to do in order to guarantee their place in next year’s Copa Libertadores and will know that a 1-1 draw against Aldosivi in the Cilindro is two points dropped.
Antonio Medina sneaked a shot inside Agustín Orion’s near post to give the visitors a 22nd-minute lead but Argentina under-20 international Lautaro Martínez swiftly brought La Academia level with a superb volley.
Unable to find a second despite dominating possession, Racing had to settle for a point and while it does little to help their cause, Aldosivi have edged towards safety from relegation for this season.
Quilmes, however, look increasingly doomed after an earlier 1-0 defeat to Patronato in the Estadio Centenario. Los Cerveceros had their chances and saw plenty of the ball, particularly after the visitors had Marcos Maydana sent off before the hour mark but Nicolás Bertocchi’s first half goal was enough for the points.
It was Patronato’s only shot on goal but earned a crucial three points that should see El Patrón safe but edges Quilmes closer to the drop.
