Happy new year! In this week’s HOP Sam is joined by English Dan and Santi for a quick roundup of the most relevant action in the Copa Diego Maradona over the Christmas and new year period (including a very entertaining 2-2 draw between Boca Juniors and River Plate), and a look back on the first legs of the Copa Libertadores semi-finals, which saw River get humped by Palmeiras and Boca involved in a cagey draw at home to Santos (since we recorded it’s been reported that Santos goalkeeper John was positive for COVID-19 during the match).
