Restructuring Argentina’s lower divisions: what they’ll look like soon

At the national team level, the Asociación de Fútbol Argentino is tearing itself apart as the search begins to replace Jorge Sampaoli.

A country in chaos

Tough at the top

On Saturday afternoon, Ferro Carril Oeste beat Chacarita Juniors 2-0 to leave things at the top of B Nacional more congested than ever, but later on was another meeting of title chasers, as Vélez Sársfield, top of Primera A, hosted Racing Club, who amazingly would have gone fifth with a win.
