The third weekend is already upon us, with Boca returning to league action after their holiday in Catalunya by hosting Lanús. The champions are away to Banfield on Saturday, whilst it’s an all-Santa Fe Province clash between Rosario Central and Colón which kicks the weekend off. Estudiantes, having finally won a match on Wednesday night against Independiente in the Copa Sudamericana, travel to San Lorenzo, but the biggest match of the weekend is the season’s first clásico – Racing vs. Independiente, on Sunday afternoon.
All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.
