In the sixty-fourth episode of Hand Of Pod there’s a lot to get through. Sam, Dan and Dan take you through two five-goal thrillers from last weekend, both of which affected the relegation battles, with Olimpo now down with three matches left of the season. We look at Boca Juniors’ chances in the league (they’re now three points clear at the top) and Copa Libertadores, and briefly look forward to this Saturday’s World Cup qualifying match in the Estadio Monumental between Argentina and Ecuador – Sam and Aussie Dan will be there. We’ve a lot of listeners’ questions to answer on everything from how positions are decided in the event of a tie on points to Alejandro Sabella’s team selection in the national side.
Since we recorded, Boca Juniors put Rosario Central out of the Copa Argentina on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the quarter-final.
