Episode 395: Estudiantes and Colón continue good starts, and Boca host River this weekend

In this week’s HOP Sam, English Dan, Andrés and Santi look back on two more weeks of Copa de la Liga Profesional action which have seen Colón and Estudiantes – who meet on Saturday – continue to impress, with Aldosivi and Central Córdoba (who are playing each other in Mar Del Plata as this episode is uploaded on Friday evening) also intriguing us early on. The big headline-grabber this weekend is the superclásico in the Bombonera, as we eventually remember, so we have a bit of a preview of that too.

Episode 390: rounding up the midsummer action

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).
