C. Cordoba vs. Argentinos Jrs (Friday, 11.00pm)
El Ferroviario have seven points after five encounters in this round, while El Bicho are eyeing a place in next year's Copa Libertadores, trailing Boca Juniors for a group stage spot by four points in the aggregate table.
We say: Central Cordoba 0-0 Argentinos Juniors
Both of these sides have played well, with a dash of quality, but neither have been consistent, and we anticipate Juniors will have the ball for long stretches, but they have struggled to make their lengthy possession pay off.
Boca Juniors vs. Banfield (Saturday, 1.30am)
After a rare defeat at La Bombonera a week ago, Boca Juniors need a win at home versus Banfield on Friday to assure they remain in a top-three position in the Argentine Primera Division overall standings.
Boca conceded two penalty kicks to Union last Friday, losing 2-1, while El Taladro stretched their unbeaten run in the second phase to four straight games, coming back to draw 1-1 against Barracas Central.
We say: Boca Juniors 1-0 Banfield
With everything to play for at the Copa Libertadores, next Tuesday, do not expect Battaglia to yield his strongest squad for this encounter.
That being said, even some of the Boca Juniors reserves are more than capable of getting the job done against a side which should not trouble them much in the attacking third, while there is still enough quality for Xeneizes to earn three points on Friday.
