The second round the Torneo Apertura has already kicked off I’m afraid, thanks to my laziness in starting work today. As I type, Arsenal de Sarandí have just beaten Atlético Rafaela. Later in the week we’ll have Boca Juniors at home to Unión tonight, Lanús at home to Independiente tomorrow, and a potential cracker on Wednesday night in Avellaneda, where Racing will host Godoy Cruz. Next up today, it’s champions Vélez Sarsfield at home to Banfield. All the kick off times are right here.
All kick off times are local. Add four hours for British Summer Time.
