Estudiantes, the current champs, face Boca in the "revenge" of last season's title tie breaker. That was the only time that Estudiantes beat Boca in the past 11 years. Estudiantes is unbeaten in 17 games, and presently have 8 points ... Boca were held on 7 points after the shock defeat to San Lorenzo 3-0 last Sunday.
Veron vs Riquelme ... a revival of the Inter vs Villarreal UCL 4ters of last year? Palermo, born at Estudiantes, has also some beef with Veron after the final of last season. Close friends until then, the incidents in which Veron "pressured" Palermo last time for scoring against the team he is fan of, have broken a friendship of 15+ years. A game full of "battles" thru out the field, including for Boca's coach, M.A. Russo, who played for Estudiantes over 500 games.
