First B

Naval Lyceum vs. Saint Andrew

HOW DO THEY GET THERE: With Hurling’s classification last Saturday to accompany San Cirano and San Martín, it only remains to know who will be the fourth semifinalist team of the Primera B. Liceo Naval is the great candidate, and will receive a rival who had a hard time making a foothold in almost the entire championship. The navals come from a tough defeat in Hurlingham, where green sealed their passage to the semifinal and overcame it with a clear victory by 48 to 15. San Andrés received Manuel Belgrano in Benavídez, and could not get out of the level that accompanied him during all year, losing by 30 points of difference (52-22).

WHAT DO THEY SEEK: At Liceo Naval everyone knows that they depend on themselves. They only have to win to seal their way to the semifinals and thus maintain the two-point distance they have over Delta and Manuel Belgrano. San Andrés had a poor performance, with eight defeats and only four successes. Only in the victories against SITAS and DAOM of the last dates did he show some glimpses of what they could give.

BACKGROUND: In 2019 they faced each other for the First B tournament, where San Andrés prevailed in Núñez by the minimum; 28 to 27. William has not beat the club of Scottish origin at home since 2012, when they won by 22 to 13.

Lanús vs. Military High School

HOW DO THEY GET THERE: With the four teams classified for the final round, it only remains to know what the crosses will be. CUQ arrives as the only leader and undefeated in the division and will be local to the fourth of the group. Liceo Militar may be the likely rival, since it will only surpass the Italian and Vicentinos Club line if it adds bonus points and they give up points. Lanús was already out despite playing a very good tournament. He was fifth in the zone and that way he will not be able to catch up with his rival this weekend. The Vikings beat Centro Naval 26-22 while those from Loma Hermosa left Monte Grande zero, beating it 30-0.

WHAT DO THEY SEEK: For the southern team it can be said that they fulfilled in the return to rugby. With a positive balance since they won eight and only lost four games, against the Italian Club, Vicentinos, CUQ and the least expected, Old Georgian. The tricolor was the protagonist from the start, with only three consecutive falls, against the clubs that precede him in the table. With the classification consummated, they will look for the best preparation to be played at the crossroads of the semifinals.

BACKGROUND: Without records in the category, they will meet for the first time in the Superior Division.
