Another clásico this week, Argentina’s oldest in fact, sees River host Racing on Sunday afternoon. With Racing’s form of late this seems like the perfect time for Diego Simeone’s men to start allying some good football to their already not-actually-that-bad results, but don’t hold your breath. Lanús, a little oddly, have less than 48 hours to recover from Thursday night’s bore draw with Cuenca before travelling to Jujuy to take on El Lobo Jujeño, which seems a bit unfair really.
As ever, all kick off times are local. Add two hours for Greenwich Mean Time.
