Episode 57: The Avellaneda clásico, Clausura title race, and two cup competitions

Episode 57 of Hand Of Pod is a long ‘un, because Sam, English Dan and Seba have a derby to preview. It doesn’t help, then, that Seba has decided he’s going to watch QPR instead of Racing on Saturday morning. We look at the roles of both managers going into Saturday’s Avellaneda derby between Independiente and Racing, and also at Tigre’s slump in form, the qualifications of Boca Juniors and Vélez Sarsfield in the Copa Libertadores and of Tigre and River Plate in the Copa Argentina, and answer your questions on everything from Pablo Mouche, Jorge Sampaoli, Gerardo Martino, Arsenal de Sarandí and Club Atlético Douglas Haig (yes, there really is such a club). Australian Dan will return next week.

Mystic Dan may be in Ecuador, but he’s still emailed us his predictions for this weekend, and you can read them below. Also, don’t forget you can subscribe to us here on iTunes.

  1. Drops like a sledgehammer. Emotionally beaten, one leaves it a different person — slightly changed, educated by pain, as Goethe said.
