According to expectations, Estudiantes won against Huracan and now they are again three points before only competitor for title, Velez Sarsfield. Because of that, winning three points on this match is of great significance for them. Tonight's host, Gimnasia LP, was strong team at home in another time. But, thing are changing. Last years, Gimnasia has been weak, while Velez Sarsfield is one of the best Argentinean clubs. Gimnasia is sitting at 19th place of Apertura, and it is their the worst standing in 69 seasons of Primera Division. This club has huge financial problems, and players still have not got their September wages. Tonight, Gimnasia is without absent players.
Velez, as I already said, is team from the top of Argentiean football last years. In this Apertura, Velez suffered only two defeats, both away from home, 1:1 against Boca Juniors and 0:2 against Newell's Old Boys. They won four and draw one match in the last five rounds. The only draw was with Estudiantes, 0:0. Velez is almost completed for tonight's match. Only defender Tobio is absent because of injury.
Otherwise, Estudiantes is also from La Plata, and among them and Gimnasia exists a big rivalry. Practically, Gimnasia is in situation to struggle tonight for their bitter rival's interests. But, independently of that, Velez is much better team, and tonight, with a bit difficulty (in the usual way), they should win very important points.
