Episode 289: Defensa shock Boca, but no one can take advantage

The two hundred and eighty-ninth episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, English Dan and Andrés meet to discuss a weekend of action in the Superliga which saw Boca Juniors’ defeat to Defensa y Justicia on Saturday throw the door wide open for Talleres and San Lorenzo … and Talleres and San Lorenzo both fail completely to take advantage. There’s a new second place team thanks to Godoy Cruz tonking San Lorenzo 5-0 on Sunday, but they’re still seven points behind the leaders and there are now just five games remaining. Elsewhere, River Plate kept up their great run of domestic form with a 2-0 away win over Racing that was clinical if not spectacular, and Chacarita Juniors aren’t dead yet – have a listen to find out why Sam reckons there’s an AFA conspiracy to keep them in the Superliga (well, not really. But if they win again this weekend with some iffy refereeing, then maybe).
