The Copa De La Superliga in Argentina has not halted play due to the coronavirus, and Monday night's doubleheader is garnering vast attention from International soccer fans. Lanus takes on Argentinos Juniors in Buenos Aires at 6 p.m. ET, followed by Rosario Central visiting Colon in Santa Fe at 8:10 p.m. ET. These matches are part of a Cup competition following the Superliga regular season, with the 24 teams from the Primera Division split into two groups of 12. The winners of each group meet in the May 31 final.
Every team involved is going all out for two reasons: the champion and runner-up are eligible to play in the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana, and the teams that finish poorly could be relegated to a lower division.
