Episode 92: Lanús & River lead & Independiente shock Vélez ahead of the Avellaneda clásico

In the ninety-second episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam and English Dan are joined by Mariano the San Lorenzo fan to discuss a Torneo Inicial second round with one outstanding result; ten-man Independiente’s shock victory over champions Vélez Sarsfield. Away from Liniers, there were wins for both Lanús and River Plate, who go joint top of the nascent Inicial table, a win against Racing, inspired by Luciano Vietto, which sends both clubs into the clásico de Avellaneda this coming weekend in good spirits, and a draw for Mariano’s San Lorenzo which we discuss, as well as asking him for his thoughts on Viggo Mortensen’s charity flower seeds, and an update on the Return To Boedo (which is San Lorenzo’s plan to buy back the land their old stadium stood on, not another Lord Of The Rings film).

As ever, Mystic Sam’s third round predictions are below the line – and don’t forget you can subscribe to us on iTunes if you haven’t already.
