Episode 107: Looking back at a big domestic weekend & forward to a pivotal World Cup qualifying one

In the 107th episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Santi are joined by prodigal son Joel Richards to look back on a weekend of domestic action and look forward to a weekend of both domestic and international matches. Argentinos Juniors’ 2-0 win over River Plate had ramifications for both the relegation table and the title race, and means Independiente could (though it’d be a stretch) be relegated this coming weekend. Newell’s Old Boys missed the chance to pull five points clear, whilst Racing and San Lorenzo are both close to securing Copa Sudamericana places. We also look forward to Argentina’s World Cup qualifying double-header; they’ll play Colombia at home on Friday, and Ecuador away on Tuesday. It’s longer than the last few, but we hope you like it.
