This weekend begins with leaders Vélez hosting struggling Lanús, and ends on Sunday evening when Argentinos Juniors visit El Cilindro take on Racing. Boca play Tigre – hard to believe that under 18 months ago this was a title-decider – and Estudiantes, fresh back from their latest Copa Libertadores exploits in Bolivia, are at home to Newell’s Old Boys. The week’s other Copa participants, Banfield, host Arsenal de Sarandí. No clásicos this weekend, but next week sees a minor one between two teams some way further down the league…
