Round 16

Belgrano have a must-win match against Colon de Santa Fe. Belgrano will look to shake off the disappointing defeat in the last fixture against Gimnasia de Jujuy and try to come up with the goods against Colon. It is another vital match for Belgrano's obective to escape relegation. Colon have been performing very poorly this season and they find themselves in the bottom two of the league. Color were tipped to be struggling this season but they have indeed become involved in the relegation battle and are targeted as a direct rival by Belgrano. Both teams were beaten in the last fixture.

Belgrano news: Cervera is out for the remaining of the Apertura with a knee injury. The manager Mario Griguol leaves the formation unchanged and is looking for Cervera's replacement. Andres Aimar (Pablo Aimar's brother) and Cesar Mansanelli are the most likely. The manager has also tried some changes upfront.

Colon news: Rumours were heard during the week about the resignation of the manager. Also, there were reports of several players at odds with Julio Falcioni. Conditions are not the best in Colon's camp but some journalists gathered that the manager plans to implement a decidedly attacking formation against Belgrano.

Date and venue: Sunday 19th November. Kick-off: 16.30. Stadium: Brigadier Lopez (Colon). Referee: Rafael Furchi.
