Nice football day to compensate the very little we had seen on Friday, and also really good in terms of expected results and the recommended bets (well, you would only know that if you are a customer of Argentina Previews :) )

Union 3 - Velez 3

The best of the day was without a doubt the 3-3 draw between Union and Velez.
Union played their best game in a very long time and during most of the game they dominated Velez. They scored the 1-0 but Velez is a team you can't give even the smallest advantage because they are extremely smart, and when the hosts relaxed a little bit they scored twice to get a 1-2 lead at halftime.
The 2nd half started with Velez scoring the 1-3 after some amazing passing and it looked like it was game over for Union, but like 2 weeks ago in the derby vs Colon, they didn't give up and got a 3-3 draw that was absolutely deserved. Neither of them was happy with the draw and both had chances to win it in the end but overall the 3-3 tie was a fair score.

Tigre 1 - Estudiantes 1

Another fair draw was the 1-1 tie in Tigre-Estudiantes. Tigre couldn't play their usual good football and I'm tempted to say this was probably Estudiantes's best game so far in Clausura.
They scored an early goal but a few minutes later Tigre got the equalizer through a penalty kick (bad called in my opinion). The rest of the game showed Estudiantes playing better but Tigre dangerous on counter attacks. As minutes passed both looked happy with the draw and that was how the game ended.
Thanks to Velez not winning, Tigre will remain as the only leader after round 6 despite Sunday results and also at the same time they will stay in a direct relegation place.

Olimpo 0 - Racing 3

Once again (like a few weeks ago vs Godoy Cruz) Racing found themselves very early in the game playing with one more men on the field, and also once again, they could barely take advantage of it.
Olimpo played a fairly good 1st half even with 10 men so it was no surprise that after a very boring 1st half the game was scoreless. The 2nd half was not much different but everything changed when a long pass ended in an own goal for the 0-1. That goal opened the game and Racing didn't have much problems to score two more for their 2nd consecutive win.
The 3 goals difference was probably too much because Olimpo didn't play that bad, but it seems their fate looks more sealed every week and it would be a big surprise if they aren't relegated at the end of the season.
The recommended OVER 2 came thanks to a little luck, but a win is a win :)

Independiente 2 - Belgrano 0

The other Avellaneda team also got the 2nd consecutive win in a very boring match.
Independiente always wanted a little more but it wasn't until the 75th minute that Ernesto Farias, scorer of the hat trick last week vs Boca, headed the ball coming off a free kick for the 1-0.
Belgrano, with very important missings in defense, had no reaction and conceded again a few minutes later.
Another nice bet won here if you took the -0.25 that was available @ 1.90+ during the morning.
