Episode 159: The October 2014 Superclásico preview

In the hundred and fifty-ninth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam is joined by Andrés, Gustavo and Joel to preview this Sunday’s clash between River Plate and Boca Juniors in the Monumental. We give an overview of the history of the fixture (and who better to guide us through it than Joel, who wrote the book on the rivalry?), and bring things up to date with a look at how both sides’ campaigns have gone so far. A look at last weekend in the Torneo de Transición follows, with Newell’s Old Boys’ unbeaten record brought to an end by Banfield, and Racing starting to look competent again (give it a week…). The superclásico on Sunday will be live to the world for free on YouTube via Fútbol Para Todos’ channel – this is the only preview you need for it.
