Belgrano are safe even though they dropped down to the foot of Primera Division standings two games before the end of the season.
Pirata will thus host Newell’s Old Boys without a string imperative to end the negative run this Thursday at Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes.
The hosts have been enjoying a lengthy run of five consecutive matches without a single defeat before back-to-back losses to Arsenal Sarandi and Estudiantes within last seven days.
Sebastian Mendez can’t be happy with the campaign his team has had in this term of Primera Division as Belgrano took no more than 22 points in 28 matches.
