Episode 441: Two more wins for Argentina, and reviewing the Copa Argentina quarter-finals

This week Sam and English Dan look back on Atlético Tucumán once again rising to the challenge of maintaining their league leadership, wonder which players have made a case for inclusion in Lionel Scaloni’s World Cup squad during Argentina’s 3–0 wins over Honduras and Jamaica, and review the Copa Argentina quarter-finals, which we didn’t want to turn into just talking about River and Boca’s matches … but which did anyway because those two matches were really good and the other two frankly weren’t.

Episode 440: Atlético Tucumán still lead, and previewing Argentina’s friendlies

This week, Sam and Andrés are joined by English Dan, who’s back from holiday. We fill him in on what he’s missed – including several changes of leadership in the league, even though Atlético Tucumán currently lead the title race just as they did when he left. We also give a preview of Argentina’s chances in their friendlies in the United States against Honduras and Jamaica (we’re sticking our necks out and predicting two victories).

Episode 439: Libertadores semi-final review and superclásico preview

This week Sam and Santi look back on both Copa Libertadores semi-finals, one of which was rather more dramatic and closely fought than the other, and preview Sunday’s superclásico at the Bombonera. We also discuss a tightening title race, as Atlético Tucumán have picked up just one point from two games since we last recorded, allowing Gimnasia to go dead level with them at the top of the table.

Episode 438: A goal from 70 metres and a new home stadium for Argentina?

This week, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back at last weekend’s matches – which included a 4–0 win with two golazos included for league leaders Atlético Tucumán – and ask how much sense it really makes for the AFA to (reportedly) be considering remodelling Mar Del Plata’s Estadio José María Minella to use as a home ground for the national team.

Episode 437: Atlético Tucumán still lead, and a peek at the 2023 league structure

This week Sam, English Dan and Santi look back on not one but two weeks of Liga Profesional action, with Atlético Tucumán still leading the way, Gimnasia giving chase and River Plate looking like they’d sparked into life before falling back to Earth again against Arsenal. There’s also a look at the possible structure of the top flight during 2023, which is set to be discussed in an AFA board meeting on Friday morning.

Episode 436: Vélez are the last Argentines standing in the Libertadores

This week Sam, English Dan, Andrés and Tony are visited by listener Tommy to discuss a week of action that’s seen Atlético Tucumán remain top of the table with an unlikely chasing pack, and Vélez Sarsfield emerge as the only Argentine (and indeed non-Brazilian) semifinalists in this year’s Copa Libertadores, after they beat Talleres pretty comfortably over two legs and Estudiantes got hit by the mother of all sucker punches from Athletico Paranaense.

Episode 435: Atlético Tucumán still lead, and Vélez and Talleres serve up a Libertadores thriller

This week, Sam and Dan look back on a weekend which saw Atlético Tucumán remain four points clear at the top of the league, a six-goal thriller in Avellaneda and both River and Boca lose. In the Copa Libertadores, the first leg of Vélez Sarsfield v Talleres was an absolute humdinger, and our listeners’ questions include one about the chances of Ricardo Caruso Lombardi catching monkeypox.

Episode 434: a busy week in the Liga Profesional

It’s only been a week since our last episode, but this week felt particular packed, with plenty of stuff to discuss both on and off the pitch in the league and Tigre being shocked in the Copa Argentina by Deportivo Madryn, as well as a Copa América Femenina update. Sam, English Dan and Andrés talk you through it all.

Episode 433: Tevez gets his first wins as a manager and Argentinos lead the way

This week, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back on almost two full rounds of action that included Carlos Tevez’s Rosario Central winning the clásico rosarino against Newell’s Old Boys, and reflect on a top five that currently includes exactly no teams we’d have predicted would be in the top five after nine matches. We also ask whether Rodrigo De Paul’s place in Argentina’s World Cup squad could be endangered by his divorce proceedings, and because that apparently isn’t quite WTF enough, we discuss the news that Maxi López is (one of) the new owner(s) of Birmingham City?!

Episode 432: Racing claim the clásico; Newell’s remain top

This week, Sam and English Dan look back on last week’s league games, including a whole load of 3–2s and a 1–0 win for Racing over Independiente, consider the main runners in the title race and more bad results for River Plate and Boca Juniors. The title is already out of date, because thanks to a 1–0 win over Aldosivi on Friday night, at the time of uploading this episode Atlético Tucumán(!) were top of the league.
