Up and down week for Newell's as they joined Lanus at the top of the league last week, but lost 0-1 at home vs Velez in the 1st leg of Copa Libertadores' Round of 16, curiously the same rival that they had beaten on Friday 3-1 to reach 22 points.
The away win was not deserved at all and the series that will have its 2nd leg in almost 3 weeks, looks still very open.
Lanus continues with their small downslide. They are still undefeated in 2013 but won only one of the last 4 games and last week failed to beat the almost relegated Union!
If we have to talk about teams down in the hole, no one is deeper than Independiente. They lost again, 0-2 at Rafaela, and they are realizing that they might get relegated for the first time ever.
Estudiantes is down there with them as well, still winless in 2013 but with a better Averages that will keep them safe at least for this season, while Boca continues with their usual struggle but this time they managed to hold their rival to a 0-0 draw.
No wins in 9 league games for Boca who will play at home vs Corinthians on Wednesday for Copa Libertadores' Round of 16 in a rematch of last year's final.
Will Juan Roman Riquelme recover on time to play ?
Oh, and next week they host River in a new edition of the Superclasico !!!
River got an important win at Mendoza vs Godoy Cruz, San Lorenzo ended their bad streak with a good performance and a 3-1 win at Arsenal and Racing did everything to deserve the 3 points but conceded a very late goal in the 1-1 vs Colon.
All the goals of Round 10:
