This weekend sees the first clásico of the season between members of the ‘Big Five’, with San Lorenzo hosting Racing Club on Sunday afternoon as Argentina finally bids farewell to winter. Saturday sees Tigre visit Gimnasia in a match which should see both sides hopeful of getting some points on the board, but Friday sees the top three all in action – Estudiantes (2nd) visit Huracán, then Central (1st) take on Banfield (3rd) in Santa Fe.
All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.
