The good time of River leaves the team in the top positions of the Professional League. Yesterday, against Arsenal, the Millionaire was left with three very important points that left him only two units from Talleres, the only leader of the contest, at least, until Lanús plays his match. Those led by Marcelo Gallardo are, so far, the only leaders, one unit above Estudiantes and two above Independiente.
However, the hot streak has also allowed River get to the top of the general table, which will determine which teams will play the international cups in 2022. After an irregular start, the millionaire he was outside the qualifying zone for the Copa Libertadores. Now, the reality is very different: it is third, with 45 units. Ahead, they have Vélez (48) and Talleres (46). Students find the same points, but worse goal difference. Colón (44) is located just one unit away.

Even so, as Marcelo Gallardo pointed out in a press conference, Argentine football is going through a moment of great parity. If the Millionaire lost yesterday to Arsenal, he was in fifth place. Even today Lanús can jump from seventh place and match his own line River and Students. The table seems to want to be cut on these dates, but teams like Independiente, Boca and Racing are waiting to stay with a place.
How is the classification system for the Cups in 2022
So far, the team that already has a guaranteed place in the Copa Libertadores 2022 is Colón. El Sabalero will be accompanied by the champion of the current competition, as well as by the winner of the Argentine Cup. There, there would already be three classified, to which then the first three places in the general table would be added. For example, Workshops is in it, but, if it wins the current tournament, it would open one more quota, which, for now, would be for Students.
For their part, Banfield and Boca already have a guaranteed place in the South American Cup, although Xeneize, to improve and reach Libertadores positions, will play this last tournament. Independiente, Lanús –he can win today and move on to Libertadores–, Racing and Argentinos would be the other teams, but teams like San Lorenzo, Rosario Central and Unión can score important points to better position themselves.
