On Wednesday afternoon, the postponed second half of Estudiantes v Lanús was played (the match was called off at half time on Monday last week after a Lanús fan was shot dead by police). Estudiantes were 2-0 up already from the first half, but following their 5-1 thrashing of River Plate on Sunday, if Lanús could turn the match around and get a win, they’d go into the last weekend with a chance of forcing a playoff for the title. That didn’t happen; short of ideas, and up against a determined Estudiantes back line, Lanús couldn’t even manage one, and it ended in a 2-0 win for the hosts. Newell’s Old Boys are the new champions of Argentina. There’ll be no celebration just yet; in a couple of hours they’ll be playing Talleres de Córdoba in Chaco in the Copa Argentina. Later today, we’ll be recording episode 109 of Hand Of Pod, and one of the main topics will be how much Newell’s deserve this title. ¡Felicitaciones, leprosos!
