Episode 82: reviewing Racing v Newell’s, and previewing a monumental superclásico

In the eighty-second episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan, Joel and Ed run their critical eyes over the biggest clash of last weekend, Racing v Newell’s (2nd v 1st), and explain why we enjoyed it even though many who weren’t there thought it wasn’t such a great game on TV. We discuss the continued development of an interesting title race, before moving on to the biggest match of the year in Argentina: the return of the superclásico after River Plate’s year in the second division. We preview River v Boca Juniors – which will be played on Sunday afternoon – and talk about the history and some of the reasons it’s become the biggest fixture in the country. Enjoy.
