Episode 128: Still no wiser about the champions, Lanús’ Sudamericana hopes & Colón in crisis update

The hundred-and-twenty-eighth episode of Hand Of Pod was recorded two days before the start of the final round of league fixtures, and we still have no idea who out of San Lorenzo, Lanús, Newell’s Old Boys and Vélez Sarsfield are going to be champions – Vélez host San Lorenzo and Newell’s host Lanús in the last round, but those matches won’t be played until Sunday the 15th. That’s due to Lanús’ participation in the Copa Sudamericana final (they drew the first leg 1-1 shortly after we recorded this episode). We also look at Racing’s continuing improvement, San Lorenzo bottling the job against Estudiantes, a five goal thriller between Gimnasia and Quilmes, and give updates on the situations at Colón (who could be forcibly relegated) and Independiente (going well in the B). The next episode of Hand Of Pod won’t be until after the league season is finally over, the week starting the 16th December.

  1. Hi, just started following argentine football and I am amazed how the fans can stop the games with their fireworks displays etc. happened last night Boca game and at Quilmes too. Is this normal? Tried to find out on the web but info in English hard to come by. Thanks and looking forward to listening to the podcast.
