The right combination of results this weekend could see Newell’s all but secure the title, or at least ensure that they and Banfield will be the only teams left in the title hunt going into the last two rounds of matches. Estudiantes’ domestic 2009 is already over – they drew 0-0 with Chacarita Juniors last night in a match that was played early to allow them to fly to the United Arab Emirates in preparation for the Club World Cup. There’s a clásico – Boca host Independiente – and no Monday matches this week. All the kick off times are right here.
