That Boca was the champion 2 rounds before the end made this Apertura one of the least interesting tournaments of the last few years.
The only thing decided in the end was the Copa Libertadores qualification, where Godoy Cruz finally won the points they needed to take the last available place and join Velez, Boca, Lanus and Arsenal as the other qualified teams.
Also Copa Sudamericana places were decided, but this will start on August 2012 and even though some teams are in the qualification zone they won't be able to play it if they have to play promotion playoffs or are relegated so the final list of teams won't be decided until June/July 2012.
With one pending game to be completed in early February (Estudiantes 0 - Banfield 1 suspended after 13 minutes), this were the final standings of Apertura 2011 and the 2011 table that set the teams that will play international competition in 2012.
