Tachira lead by a point over Estudiantes de Mérida but they second-placed side have a game in hand.
They are also in much better form, with three victories and a draw in their last four matches; scoring 35 goals in 18 games.

Three teams fighting at the top in Group Central
Deportivo La Guaira with 28 points are leading Group Central but after losing two of their last five games, they head a very competitive and congested table.
Just three points separate the top three with Gran Valencia two points off top with two games in hand.
Only eight points separate top from bottom in an interesting table.
La Guaira visit Aragua FC this weekend while Gran Valencia travel to face a critical away match against Carabobo, who have won four of their last five games.
Finaliza la tercera vuelta y ¡seguimos siendo los líderes del Grupo Central! 🔝🔥
Nos mantenemos entrenando, para conquistar nuestro boleto a la siguiente fase. 💪🏻

Caracas drew 1-1 against UCV FC last night. Monagas play Mineros de Guayana at the weekend.
