Melgar, the current leader, dominated the match against Sport Boys del Callao, whom they beat 0-1 at the Alberto Gallardo stadium.

Despite scoring only one goal, the Red and Blacks did not lack opportunities in the first half.

In fact, striker Luis Iberico had three chances to score. But the victory came thanks to right winger Kevin Quevedo, who scored in the 53rd minute after an assist from Argentine Leonel Galeano, which allowed the team from Arequipa to accumulate 37 points and get ever closer to the Apertura title.

The leader has won seven consecutive days, has not lost a match since April 10 and, with two dates to conclude the Apertura Tournament, is already close to the title.

The seventeenth day of the Apertura closed this Monday with a 1-1 draw for the second team in the standings, Sport Huancayo, in a duel against Ayacucho.

Midfielder Daniel Morales scored for Huancayo, who played the last minutes with ten men due to Joel Pinto's expulsion, while Mexican striker Othoniel Arce scored for the locals.

Huancayo wins only one point, accumulates 34 and is three behind Melgar, becoming the main rival of the Arequipeños in the two remaining days of League 1.
