Liga Argentina on US TV: How to watch and live stream Boca Juniors, River Plate & Copa de la Liga Profesional matches

Carlos Tevez Boca Juniors 2019-20

The new season of football in Argentina begins this weekend with the Copa de la Liga Profesional filling a gap in the calendar before the proper domestic league kicks off in 2021.

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 begins with a new cup format where six groups of four teams compete for 12 places in the Campeon de Copa phase. That next step will consist 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.

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 wordlwide, excluding  Argentina, Germany, Austria, Portugal, Israel, Russia, Switzerland and the Balkans.

How to watch Lanus vs Boca Juniors on US TV

Boca Juniors is the current Argentine champion and will retain that title regardless of what happens in the Copa de Liga Profesional.

However, winning is in their nature, as Argentina’s most successful club team, and they will look to start the 2020-21 domestic season with a win against Lanus.

Carlos Tevez remains the club captain and scored five goals in the last four games of the league season before the coronavirus pandemic cut the campaign short.

Lanus and Boca Juniors compete in Group D, which looks like the strongest pool as it also contains Newell’s Old Boys and Talleres Cordoba.

River Plate vs Banfield team news and preview

River Plate finished as runners-up to Boca Juniors in the shortened 2019-20 Argentine Superliga, missing out on the league title by just one point.

River’s first game of the new Copa competition is against Banfield, who had a mixed season in the Superliga, winning just six of 23 games.

The shorter season meant that the two sides faced off just once in the league in 2019-20, but that ended in a 1-0 win for hosts River Plate, who will be hoping for a repeat of the same this weekend.

River Plate will be expected to win this game, but after the long break without football, expect some unpredictable results on the first weekend.
