Marcelo Gallardo’s men return to domestic action after sealing their place in the Copa Libertadores semi-finals

Argentine football continues across the festive season this December and January with the playing of the Copa Diego Armando Maradona.

All games are live streamed on Fanatiz and you can sign up to watch free here.

Boca was crowned 2019-20 league champions in March after coming out on top during the 23-game season. 

The Copa Superliga was scheduled to follow on from the regular campaign, but was scrapped after just one game as football came to a halt.

This season’s action began with a new cup format, renamed after Diego Maradona following his death in November, where six groups of four teams competed for 12 places in the Campeon de Copa phase.

This next step consists of two groups of six teams and the winner of each will play in a final clash on January 17.

The winner of the Campeon phase will then qualify for the 2021 Copa Libertadores.

There is also a Sudamericana spot open to the sides disputing the Complementary phase, which is exactly the same in format and includes all the teams that failed to qualify for the Campeon phase.

It is expected that the new season of the next Primera Division season will then follow in March 2021.

Fanatiz has the rights to the Copa de la Liga Profesional worldwide, excluding  Argentina, Germany, Austria, Portugal, Israel, Russia, Switzerland and the Balkans.

How to watch Huracan vs River on US TV

Huracan were left delighted last weekend as they kicked off this second phase of the Copa Diego Armando Maradona in spectacular fashion. 

Having fallen two goals behind to Independiente in the first 10 minutes, the Globo fought back to win 3-2, aided by an early red card suffered by Thomas Ortega. 

They will now hope to pick up a second straight win against Marcelo Gallardo’s Millonario, who became the first Argentine side to qualify for the 2020 Libertadores semis on Thursday. 

The local Copa has been of secondary importance to River all this season due to their continental exertions, but in a week that they sealed a fourth consecutive berth in the last four of South America’s most important club competition the Nunez club would love to cap their celebrations with yet another victory.
