Championship play-off[edit]

Almagro and Aldosivi ended up tied in points at the end of the 24 weeks of regular season. Tournament rules establish that, unlike any other position on the table, if two or more teams are equal in points at the end of play, goal difference does not count and a playoff game is required. The winner of this match will achieve Promotion to Primera División as champions, while the loser will qualify to Torneo Reducido as runners-up.
