The second round of the 2009 Torneo Apertura takes in at least two channels (América will broadcast four matches exclusively, with the rest on Canal 7 and possibly Canal 9) and an early clash between two teams who could potentially be propping up the table come December – River Plate host Chacarita Juniors. Impressive first round winners San Lorenzo visit Godoy Cruz in Mendoza and champions Vélez host Arsenal, but the undoubted tie of the weekend is the clásico platense, in which South American champions Estudiantes de La Plata are at home to Gimnasia in a match which won’t see any visiting fans allowed in.
All kick off times are local – add four hours for British Summer Time.
