Episode 18: Four clásicos in three days, Riquelme’s TV ad & Lamela to Juventus?

4 May

In the eighteenth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Dan and Dan have to make do without Seba, but attempt nonetheless to sum up an action-packed weekend in the 2011 Torneo Clausura. As well as four clásicos and a seven-goal thriller in Banfield, we discuss Vélez Sarsfield’s and Estudiantes’ diverging form (and their Copa Libertadores chances for Thursday night), the news that Ángel Cappa and Gimnasia La Plata have parted company (as Sam guessed at a week or two ago), and Erik Lamela’s possible move before long to Europe. There’s also a Juan Román Riquelme TV ad (which we’ve got right here for your viewing pleasure), and a cautionary tale of what happens when a footballer thinks with his balls rather than his head.

As ever, you can listen to the pod right here, and subscribe to us on iTunes if you want to get it as soon as it’s out each week. Next week’s the superclásico special, so don’t miss out!

Mystic Dan’s predictions – and that Riquelme TV spot – are right here for those who’d like to read on.

TV ad: ‘Riquelme está feliz’

Mystic Dan’s round 13 predictions
Newell’s vs Godoy Cruz
Quilmes vs Gimnasia
Huracán vs Olimpo
Tigre vs Colón
Arsenal vs Racing
Lanús vs Estudiantes
Argentinos vs Boca
River vs All Boys
Independiente vs San Lorenzo
Vélez vs Banfield

As usual, the match in red is a clásico, and teams in bold are those Dan thinks are going to win.
