Fixture lists across the world’s top leagues outside Europe have a hotly contested look to them this weekend, with derbies scheduled in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, and champions set to be crowned in China. As per usual, FIFA.com previews all the upcoming action.
Argentinian Apertura: Huge duels across the country
A mouth-watering clash between first and second, as well as three enticing derbies, are on the menu. Boca Juniors will be keen to show their recent revival is no flash in the pan against an inconsistent Independiente side, while River Plate go into the nation’s oldest clasico against Racing Club looking to end a run of five games without victory. Last but not least, Huracan take on high-flying local rivals San Lorenzo for the 153rd time on Sunday.
