The fourth round of the 2011 Torneo Clausura features not one but two clásicos, two potentially tricky assignments for the joint leaders, and a tall task for Boca Juniors to try and get into their stride. They visit Vélez, whilst the derbies are in the Zona Sur, as Banfield host Lanús, and La Plata, with Gimnasia the home side in the first clásico to be held in the newly re-opened Estadio Único. River Plate are at home to Argentinos Juniors, and Olimpo visit Racing. Don’t forget, for a preview of the weekend’s action, you can listen to Hand Of Pod. All the kick off times and referees are right here.
All kick off times are local. Argentina is three hours behind Greenwich Mean Time, and two ahead of North America’s Eastern Standard Time.

G. Delfino, referee for the San Lorenzo and All Boys match must have missed class when handballs were discussed. Anything above the elbow seems to be ok. Krikey. Menseguez is a nice player, no ?
