The final weekend of the 2007 Torneo Apertura is upon us in Primera A, and whilst the championship’s already been decided after two matches last Wednesday, there are some juicy ties to send us off. Central, fresh from last week’s win, host Argentinos, who are gunning for their best-ever short tournament finish. And Arsenal, newly crowned Copa Sudamericana champions, are at home to Independiente. Argentinos, Banfield and Independiente can all still leapfrog Boca into third, should they win their matches.
All kickoff times are local – add three hours for Greenwich Mean Time.
