Rosario Central vs Newell’s Old Boys: How to watch Liga Argentina matches

Former Atletico Madrid assistant German Burgos oversees his first Clasico Rosarino at Newell’s helm on Sunday

Argentine football begins its program for 2021 with the game of the Copa Liga Profesional.

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

Boca was crowned 2019-20 league champion in March after coming out on top in the 23-game season, and also triumphed in the following Copa Diego Armando Maradona, which ended in January.

Instead of starting a new league season, Argentinian football authorities have instead sanctioned another cup competition, which will run from February to May.

The 26 clubs in the Primera Division have been split into two groups, with each team playing each other once.

In addition, there will be an inter-zonal match each week, where Boca and River, Racing Club and Independiente and the rest of Argentina’s Clasico rivals will face off in a series of clashes.

The top four teams from each group will then move on to a play-off phase, which will take place in a knockout format to result in a single winner.

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

How to watch Rosario Central vs Newell’s

With former Valencia and Argentina winger Cristian ‘Kily’ Gonzalez at the helm, Central are still hoping for a place in the Copa play-off.

To do so, however, the Canalla are forced to win Sunday’s Clasico Rosarino against their rivals, who have improved in recent times.

Newell has had a miserable start to the season, scoring just one point in his first five games.

The appointment of former Atletico Madrid assistant German Burgos stabilized the ship, lifting Lepra from the bottom with four draws and two wins in seven games at the head.

But it came too late to save their Copa fortunes, with Newell already mathematically eliminated with two games to go.

Gonzalez has chosen to rest several starters for Wednesday’s Copa Sudamericana victory over San Lorenzo, meaning Marco Ruben and Emiliano Vecchio are expected to return in the opening XI for the derby.

Newell took a similar approach for his loss to Libertad, and Maxi Rodriguez, 40, who left the bench on Thursday, is one of the players who will be back in Burgos’ starting lineup.
