5 correct scores predicted !!!
Only two rounds left and Estudiantes and Velez just can't stop.
The leader played a ver smart game vs Argentinos Juniors and although they started it losing 0-1, they never gave up, played it 100% focused and took advantages of some defensive mistakes of the visitors to win 3-1 and take 3 very important points.
Velez, 2 points behind Estudiantes, visited Godoy Cruz and also started a little nervous. The home team was playing better, but Velez has Santiago Silva, the league top scorer and red hot striker who opened the game before HT and it didn't take much for them to destroy Godoy Cruz in the 2nd half with a 0-4 that left no doubts.
Good but meaningles 1-0 win for Boca vs Quilmes, Huracan that keeps going down in the Averages table, Racing climbing to the last Copa Libertadores qualifying place and River winning in the 93 minute at Colon their 3rd game of the last 4 were some of the stories that this 17th round left.
