Independiente – Gimnasia
Independiente had to settle for a heartbreaking 3-3 away draw at Velez Sarsfield last time out even though they were leading 3-1 until the 88th minute. Following that disappointing result, El Rojo claimed a single victory in their last five league matches (drawing two and losing two) to make it 23 points in the Liga Profesional’s table, seven behind leaders. They also remain out of the last Copa Libertadores spots in the aggregate table.
Gimnasia LP saw their three-game unbeaten streak of two victories and one draw coming to an end last time out, when the team succumbed to an unlucky 1-0 home defeat to Sarmiento at Estadio Ciudad de La Plata. El Lobo remain on 17 points in the league table after wasting a big opportunity of leapfrogging Sarandi Arsenal in the relegation rankings: as a result, they continue sitting in the 19th spot in the respective table. On away turf, Gimnasia managed only four points from 18 on offer in this tournament (one win, one draw and four defeats).
Independiente might not fight for the championship as it looked like they would a few weeks ago, but they should be still able to beat this poor Gimnasia at home.

Talleres – Atletico Tucuman
Talleres have been displaced from the top of the Liga Profesional’s table following their 3-0 away defeat at Defensa y Justicia last Monday. The team are now second-placed on 29 points, trailing leaders River Plate by one. Alexander Medina’s men also saw their ten-match unbeaten streak of eight victories and two draws in league action coming to an end. However, they continue occupying one of the Copa Libertadores’ spots in the aggregate table. At home, the team haven’t lost any of their last ten league matches, having won seven and drawn three since succumbing to a 1-0 defeat to Velez Sarsfield in March.
Atletico Tucuman extended their winless streak to five league matches (earning just two points in that spell) after their disappointing 0-0 home draw against San Lorenzo in an uneventful game in round 14. Omar De Felippe’s men continue producing a poor campaign: with 16 points in the Liga Profesional, they are far from any important aims for the rest of the season. Furthermore, El Decano lost four of their last five away matches in this competition, only beating Newell’s Old Boys in the process.
Talleres should be able to recover from last week’s big defeat against this poor Atletico, to stay close to the leader River Plate.
