Episode 304: Getting into our cups

The three hundred and fourth episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam and Andrés catching up with what’s been going on in the Copa Argentina, which has seen a number of shocks this year but notably not in Independiente’s or River Plate’s matches since we last recorded – those two scored fifteen goals between them in seeing off Central Ballester and Central Norte respectively. There’s also a look at the round of 32 of the Copa Sudamericana, which is well underway (indeed, for Lanús it’s finished) and listeners’ questions ranging from the national team to Argentines abroad to the structure of the Superliga and the mysterious Copa de la Superliga.
