Episode 16: River’s title challenge, Fabbiani’s double, Racing’s clásico win & more

In the sixteenth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Dan and Dan discuss the weekend’s footballing action in Argentina, which included a hat trick at La Bombonera from a visiting forward you may never have heard of, a double strike from – are you sitting down? – Cristian ‘Fat Fab’ Fabbiani, and of course the clásico de Avellaneda which we previewed last week, and which was won 2-0 by Racing. We also talk about whether River can sustain their title challenge (Vélez won the game in hand 2-0 to move top just before this episode went online) and discuss the pointlessness or otherwise of the ‘local national team’, who played a 2-2 draw with Ecuador shortly before this episode was uploaded.
