The eleventh round of the 2011 Torneo Clausura took a day off on Good Friday, and runs from Saturday to Monday this week, very inconveniently for Hand Of Pod. New league leaders Vélez Sarsfield are at home to Quilmes on Saturday, and at half time of that match River Plate will kick off against Godoy Cruz in a bid to overturn the Liniers side’s lead. Boca Juniors have a very short trip to an out-of-sorts Huracán, whilst Racing, flush from last week’s clásico win, will travel to Argentinos Juniors. Independiente, who lost that game, will look to get back on track at home to All Boys and their hotshot striker, Cristian Fabbiani. All the kick off times and referees are right here.
All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.
