Gymnasia are placed second in the table in the Argentine top flight as of now, and have already established themselves as one of the frontrunners for a podium finish quite early in the season.

They are one of the very few teams to still maintain an unbeaten record, and it deserves special mentioning that they have a 100-percentage winning record at home as well.
