Episode 214: San Lorenzo and River still can’t defend, and are Boca back on track?

25 Feb

Episode 214 of Hand Of Pod is short but sweet, as Sam and Andrés take you through the last week in Argentine football. There are some entertaining matches to discuss, with San Lorenzo’s 3-2 win over Vélez Sarsfield and River Plate’s 3-3 draw away to Rosario Central the highlights – though Boca Juniors’ 4-1 win at home to Newell’s Old Boys is also a topic of conversation, and Colón’s unbeaten start to the campaign came spectacularly undone with a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Godoy Cruz in Mendoza. The clásico de Avellaneda was a desperately dull match until the last few minutes, so we don’t waste too much time talking about it. The Copa Libertadores group stage has begun, but until we’ve seen another few matches it’s a little early to comment on that yet.
