Episode 125: We are 3; Lanús on the title charge, and Racing are rubbish again

The 125th episode of Hand Of Pod was recorded on our third birthday, and Andrés and Sam raise a glass to that fact before getting stuck in to last weekend’s action, which saw Boca Juniors make up some ground on the top two, Newell’s Old Boys and San Lorenzo, after they’d drawn against each other. The biggest winners of the last few weeks, though, have been Copa Sudamericana semi-finalists Lanús, who might just have a tilt at the title. We check out the run-ins that each of the top five have with four matches of the season remaining, and ask whether Atlético de Rafaela could possibly be candidates as well (answer: no). There’s another chance to moan about how crap River Plate are, and a celebration of the fact that Vélez Sarsfield’s elimination from the Copa Sudamericana last week means South American football’s not bent after all. What better birthday present could we ask for?

We’d like to thank everyone who’s supported us and listened to us over the last three years – it’s hugely appreciated. As ever, Mystic Sam’s predictions for the sixteenth round are below. If you’d like to subscribe to HOP on iTunes, you can click here.
