Episode 72: What we didn’t learn from Argentina v Germany, and a low-scoring weekend in the league

In the seventy-second episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Dan, Dan and Joel look back on Argentina’s 3-1 friendly win over Germany hours before, and consider just how little we learned about Argentina from it. We have a Lionel Messi stat-off, before moving on to consider the lowest-scoring round of football in the Argentine Primera División in just over a decade. We wonder who owns Ignacio Piatti, exactly (he’s signed for San Lorenzo since the episode was recorded), and consider Lucas Ocampos’ move to AS Monaco, and briefly preview the coming weekend’s clásico de Avellaneda among other things. Enjoy.
