Episode 222: Copa Libertadores group stage round-up and much more

22 Apr

The two hundred and twenty-second episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, English Dan and Andrés discuss the Copa Libertadores group stage, which has finished (or had almost finished, when we recorded) with five of Argentina’s six clubs qualifying for the last sixteen – San Lorenzo are the odd one out. Boca Juniors’ transformation under Guillermo Barros Schelotto continues apace; they’ve now scored ten goals in their last two matches, which isn’t great news for their next opponents. Those next opponents are River Plate, of course, because this weekend is clásico weekend across the league, and Phil Carney is our Mystic Guest Predictor. All this and much more…
