‘Win or die’ message outside Quilmes’ ground as they face relegation from Argentina top league

Struggling side have lost their last SEVEN league matches and now face a desperate fight against the drop

‘WIN or die’ message is sprayed onto Quilmes’ stadium as club sink into a relegation battle after losing SEVEN league matches in a row in the Argentinian top flight.

The side currently sit second from bottom in a 30-team division after losing 12 of their 21 matches this season and now they appear to have a death threat on their stadium.

Relegation in the Primera Division is based on an averaging system, meaning the teams with the worst average across three years is relegated.

Their poor run in the current campaign means they are at risk of getting relegated and they will be replaced by the top teams from second tier.
