‘Where’s my week gone?!’ I can hear you inwardly asking. Don’t worry – you’ve not been in a coma since Monday. Due to the upcoming World Cup qualifiers (notably that between Argentina and Brazil in Rosario on Saturday) the AFA have moved the third round of the Torneo Apertura to midweek. Rosario Central vs River Plate has been postponed until next week, so as to avoid Cristian Fabbiani and company making a mess of the pitch prior to señores Messi, Agüero, Tevez and Heinze showing off their silky skills. All the kick off times are here, as ever.
All kick off times are local – add four hours for British Summer Time.
