The local celebrated by the hand of the both against Tomás Palacios (9m. PT) and Cristian Menéndez (27m. PT and 49m. ST, penalty).
Atlético Tucumán reached 10 points in the tournament but above all increased his average (1,093) and moved away from the relegation zone for the time being, while Talleres fell to last place with eight points.
Atlético Tucumán showed a lot of intensity at the beginningin a clear contrast to the team that was until the arrival of Lucas Pusineri on the bench as coach, and with that he was enough to quickly take the lead with the goal against the youthful Palacios.
The premises continued with the same recipes: collective play in the center and opening also for their wings. This is how the second came in the head of Menéndez, idol of the club, who was reunited with the goal in the season after a long drought.
Talleres suffered like the whole championship, which has it last, and in which it celebrated victories only twice. The goal of the Copa Libertadores took all the attention of the Cordovan team, who put substitutes on several occasions after the bad start, and this afternoon they suffered throughout the entire game.
The changes gave the team from Córdoba a greater offensive dynamic, which was planted later in the field and found small partnerships that allowed it to bother goalkeeper Nicolás Campisi, who responded correctly.
Talleres did the merits in the complement to at least discount the disadvantage and reach a more even close, but the lack of efficiency denied it.
On closing, Atlético Tucumán completed the third of the day after a penalty sanctioned by Nazareno Arasa after going to VAR: Menéndez did not hesitate and converted.
Atlético Tucumán will close its participation in the tournament against Banfield as a visitor and Talleres will say goodbye to his people against Sarmiento de Junín.
