El Más Grande is in a very good position in the local tournament since he leads his escort by six points, but he still has to play nine games and some games promise to be spectacular.
River is going through a very good present in the Professional League. After 18 disputed dates, Martín Demichelis’ men are the only leaders of the tournament with 41 points, followed by San Lorenzo with 35. El Millonario managed to gain an important advantage from the beginning and now that the fatigue in the players and the double competition have turned more intense, the team lost some points, but so did their rivals, so the difference of six units with nine games to play is important and must be taken care of.
El Más Grande visited Vélez last Monday for the date 18 of the Professional League, knowing that San Lorenzo had lost on their visit to Barracas Central, so if they won they could take eight points ahead. Demichelis’ men were very close to achieving their objective, but Vélez achieved equality at the end and the match ended 2-2. It was also a positive date for River that stretched its advantage over Cyclone one more point.
River still has to play nine games in the Professional League. On the next day they will face Defensa y Justicia -with a good performance in the tournament- and then they will have four games that could become accessible since these teams are not at their best in the Professional League: they will have to face Banfield, Institute, Barracas Central and Colón. The final stretch will be much more complicated since they will have to face San Lorenzo, Estudiantes, Rosario Central and Racing.
