Apertura 2011: round 17 fixtures

This weekend is the penultimate of the Torneo Apertura, even though there are three rounds left to play. That’s because the next round is in midweek, meaning a week from now we’ll be entering the final round of the season. This weekend, though, the title race can and probably will end; Boca Juniors host bottom-of-the-table Banfield needing only a draw to become champions. If Tigre fail to win away to San Lorenzo on Saturday, Boca could already be champions before they even play. Two of the promoted sides meet in San Juan, where San Martín play Unión. All the kick off times and referees are right here.
