We’ve got a long weekend ahead of us in Buenos Aires, which means the tenth round of the Torneo Apertura won’t end until Monday evening, when River Plate host Gimnasia La Plata. Estudiantes have the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table first thing on Friday evening, and in between Lanús are at home to San Lorenzo, resurgent champions Argentinos Juniors host Godoy Cruz… and there’s the small matter of the country’s second biggest derby in Avellaneda, with Independiente hosting Racing in front of a sell-out crowd and around 850 police. All the weekend’s kick off times are right here.
All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.
