Episode 104: Argentina’s Libertadores involvement, Migliore’s release & the relegation scramble

18 May

In episode 104 of Hand Of Pod, Sam and English Dan are joined by Mariano in a later-than-usual recording, which enables us to look back at (most of) Argentina’s Copa Libertadores involvement during this week – Boca Juniors eliminating Corinthians in controversial circumstances, and Newell’s Old Boys sending Vélez Sarsfield out on away goals (in the remaining fixture, which ended an hour and a bit after we stopped recording, Tigre were eliminated by Olimpia). We discuss the relegation battle, which could see Unión relegated next weekend, and an ever-intriguing title race, as well as the news that Pablo Migliore, now released on bail, has had his contract rescinded at San Lorenzo. Listeners’ questions include the signings of the championship so far, and Argentine footballers’ wages.
