Episode 131: River & Boca being better than rubbish, San Lorenzo beginning with (two) defeats & more

The hundred-and-thirty-first episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, Andrés and Rob look back over the opening weekend of the 2014 Torneo Final, which featured better than expected (better than we expected, at least) performances from River Plate and Boca Juniors, champions San Lorenzo starting as they don’t mean to go on with a defeat away to Olimpo in Bahía Blanca, an impressive win for Racing – who endured a typically farcical situation surrounding their new signing Wason Rentería – and more. We ask whether Newell’s have shot themselves in the foot by not adding to their strike force and whether Argentinos Juniors are going to be more entertaining this year, and give you the back story to the 20-year-old who’ll be making his debut in goal for Belgrano away to Boca Juniors on Sunday.
