The fourteenth round of the the 2011 Torneo Clausura has arrived, and that, of course, means it’s superclásico time. Don’t forget the Hand Of Pod preview episode. There are nine other games taking place this weekend though – or rather eight. Colón vs Huracán was supposed to be going on as I type, but has been suspended due to torrential rain in Santa Fe. The other kick off times, and referees, are right here though.
All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time; take one off four North America’s Eastern Standard Time. So the super, which gets the traditional 4pm Sunday slot, kicks off at 8pm if you’re in the UK, Ireland or Portugal, 9pm for those of you in mainland western Europe, and 3pm if you’re on the Eastern Seaboard of the States.

As usual, you can expect links to the local TV transmissions on my Twitter feed over the weekend, and I’ll also very likely do a post on Sunday with details of which sites to catch the superclásico on – all entirely legal, as they’ll be streamed direct from the websites of Argentina’s public TV broadcasters.
