A new fecha, a new clásico, and another visit to a former hero for River Plate. After the euphoria of Tuesday’s superclásico win, they travel to Nueva Pompeya to take on Ramón Díaz’s San Lorenzo. Meanwhile, managerless Boca Juniors host Arsenal de Sarandí. Boca’s potential next boss, Julio César Falcioni, travels with Banfield to Mendoza to take on Godoy Cruz tonight. Estudiantes are at home to Huracán, whilst their fellow-leaders (both sides now have 30 points) Vélez Sarsfield visit Gimnasia La Plata. This week sees the beginning of the summer timetable, during which players’ union rules state matches can’t be played during the hottest part of the day, which means Monday night games will be necessary to fit the whole fixture list in.
All kick off times are local. Add three hours for Greenwich Mean Time.
