Team & Goal of the week: Superliga 2019/20 Round Twenty Two

One game to play and the lead at the top is just one point after River Plate were held to a 1-1 draw by Defensa y Justicia at the Monumental and Boca Juniors put four past Colón.

Marcelo Gallardo’s side remain title favourites ahead of their trip to Atlético Tucumán next week but there is no real margin for error. And it is increasingly tight just below the top two, where five teams are level on points and only three points separate third to tenth.

Vélez climbed to third with a win over Argentinos Juniors, Lanús drew with Estudiantes and Newell’s took a point from Racing Club while Marco Ruben’s hat-trick gave Rosario Central victory over Arsenal.

Talk of changes to the relegation this season have already provided a boost to the teams at the bottom of the promedio but there were also wins for Gimnasia and Patronato, who are closing in on the likes of Colón, Aldosivi and Central Córdoba.

A shorter than usual Team of the week, here are the eleven that made the eleven according to SofaScore.
