It’s all getting tight at the top as Argentinos Juniors’ draw and Lanús’ late win sees the two clubs neck and neck at the top with Boca Juniors and River Plate only a point behind after weekend wins.
Meanwhile the big game of the weekend saw Estudiantes win the Clásico Platense and it leaves Diego Maradona’s Gimnasia in a dire situation.
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….
Matías Ibañez || Patronato
A point against the defending champions is probably a point gained for Patronato in their situation. Matías Ibañez made five saves during the 1-1 draw including a late one-on-one to deny Lisandro López a winner for Racing.
Nahuel Tenaglia || Talleres
With seven tackles and nine interceptions, Nahuel Tenaglia produced a terrific defensive display at right-back in Talleres’ 1-0 win over Newell’s Old Boys.
Héctor Martínez || Defensa y Justicia
Defensa y Justicia are no strangers to useful loanees pitching up in Florencio Varela and River Plate defender Héctor Martínez might be the latest. The 21-year-old was excellent in the air and made five tackles (100%) as El Halcón ended goalless with Argentinos Juniors.
Luis Abram || Vélez Sarsfield
Switching to a back three, Luis Abram again proved his value to Vélez in helping the side to a clean sheet in Santiago del Estero. Strong in the air the Peruvian was excellent with the ball at his feet and completed 95% of his passes.
Frank Fabra || Boca Juniors
Were it not for a serious knee injury Frank Fabra may well have left Boca over a year ago but the Colombian has had to fight his way back to fitness and into the team. Two goals bursting forward from left-back against Arsenal reminded everyone just how good Fabra was prior to that long lay off.
Fabián Rinaudo || Rosario Central
Without a win in nine, Rosario Central needed a performance and they go that against Godoy Cruz. Fabián Rinaudo bossed the midfield winning possession five times and capped it with a fine goal in the 5-2 win.
