Another week of Superliga action done so the Golazo Team & Goal of the week is back.
With thirteen matches to choose from here are the eleven that impressed from round nineteen, along with our Player of the round and pick of the goals. All stats come courtesy of WhoScored.com, who also provide previews and live in-play match stats for all Superliga matches. Feel free to disagree and leave a comment suggesting who you thought should have made it…
Alan Aguerre || Newell’s Old Boys
What a signing Alan Aguerre has proved to be for Newell’s Old Boys. There was little the 28-year-old could do to prevent Nicolás Blandi bundling in San Lorenzo’s opener but it was his outstanding stops that denied El Ciclón extending that lead and eventually helped Newell’s snatch a point.
Marcelo Herrera || Belgrano
Friday’s goalless draw with San Martín de Tucumán was ultimately a huge source of frustration for Belgrano but while the forwards couldn’t find the net, Marcelo Herrera put in an accomplished display in defence. The 26-year-old was outstanding in the air and made eleven clearances as El Pirata did more than enough to secure what would have been a hugely important three points.
Alexander Barboza || Defensa y Justicia
There is no sign of Defensa y Justicia’s title charge slowing down and while El Halcón are not blowing teams away their defensive resolve is winning them points. Alexander Barboza is central to that and the captain produced another excellent display in the 1-0 win over Gimnasia.
Yeimar Gómez Andrade || Unión
At times guilty of being too rash and being positionally naive, Yeimar Gómez Andrade did what he is good at on Saturday and it helped Unión to a 3-0 win over Atlético Tucumán. Dominant in the air and strong to any physical battles, the Colombian made nine clearances and 100% of his tackles.
