Episode 376: entering quarantine

This week’s Hand Of Pod will be the last episode we’ll record in March. That was already going to be the case when Sam, English Dan, Andrés, Julian and Tony met to record, because the government announced on Monday that football across the country was suspended for the rest of the month. It’s now well and truly the case, though, because on Thursday evening President Alberto Fernández announced a nationwide quarantine which will end when March ends. As such, we review the opening weekend of Copa Superliga action, including River Plate’s refusal to play, and wonder what the immediate future will bring.

In this week’s Hand Of Pod, Sam, Andrés and Tony look back on the drama of Boca Juniors’ title win, as the Xeneize pipped River Plate on the last day to win their third Argentine championship in four seasons. We also looked at the other drama from the weekend just gone … which was almost none, because continental spots and relegation won’t be decided until the end of the Copa Superliga group stage (if indeed that goes the distance). We also discuss the current situation regarding next season’s league system for the top flight.
