Boca Juniors went three points clear at the top, River Plate followed up their Superclásico win with a league victory at the Monumental, Central Córdoba shocked San Lorenzo and Diego Maradona picked up his first win as Gimnasia boss.
With twelve matches to choose from here are the eleven that impressed from round nine, along with our Player of the round and pick of the goals. Feel free to disagree and leave a comment suggesting who you thought should have made it.
To catch up with previous Teams of the week….
Alan Aguerre || Newell’s Old Boys
It wasn’t his most influential performance but Alan Aguerre had to be alert and with another clean sheet earned a sub-par Newell’s a point against Banfield. Without the plaudits of Andrada or Armani, Aguerre has established himself as one of the Superliga’s most consistent goalkeepers over the past year or so.
Yeimar Gómez Andrade || Unión
Whenever Unión secure victory it seems to coincide with Yeimar Gómez Andrade being on form. El Tatangue kept a clean sheet to win the Clásico Santafesino and the Colombian was at the heart of that with seven clearances, two tackles (100%) and one interception.
Lautaro Gianetti || Vélez Sarsfield
It is testament to Lautaro Gianetti’s ability that the 25-year-old has come back from a serious knee injury to captain a Vélez side full of potential leaders. Gianetti was superb against Independiente and at this level it is only a matter of time before Lionel Scaloni takes a closer look for Argentina. A good reader of the game, a decent burst of pace and comfortable on the ball, Gianetti’s goal-line clearance paved the way for Vélez’s victory.
