A midweek round to make up for a missed weekend of action saw Argentinos Juniors go clear at the top with victory over Talleres, Lanús kick a wounded Boca while they were down to go second and River Plate take advantage of Racing and Vélez dropping points to jump into third.
Diego Maradona sat on his throne in Rosario saw Gimnasia beat Newell’s, Independiente raged over refereeing decisions and Juan Antonio Pizzi’s short tenure at San Lorenzo came to an end with defeat.
With twelve matches to choose from here are the eleven that impressed from round ten, 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….
Mauricio Arboleda || Banfield
With Racing knocking on the door for almost an entire 90 minutes it took seven saves from Mauricio Arboleda to earn Banfield a draw.
Maximiliano Caire || Gimnasia
Few would have expected Gimnasia to defeat Newell’s in Rosario let alone with a 4-0 win. Maxi Caire scored the important second just after half time but stuck to his defensive duties well too.
Lautaro Gianetti || Vélez Sarsfield
A tremendous return from a serious knee injury, Lautaro Gianetti now captaining a talented Vélez side will surely be in contention for an Argentina call soon or later. Decent on the ball, a good organiser and strong in the tackle, the 25-year-old kept out Huracán on Thursday evening for a point.
Alejandro Donatti || Racing Club
Racing were unable to take advantage at the other end of the pitch but Alejandro Donatti helped keep a clean sheet that at least earned La Academia a point against Banfield.
Fabián Monzón || Atlético Tucumán
There was a hint of good fortune about Fabián Monzón’s winner last week against Banfield but the same couldn’t be said of the full-back’s outstanding free-kick to give Atlético Tucumán another win over Patronato.
