Torneo Apertura 2008 Schedule Released

The schedule for the 2008-2009 season of the Argentine Primera Division has been released. River will begin the Torneo Apertura 2008 in Santa Fe, where they will face Colon. Many difficult matches will follow this one, but the one that everyone is curious about (the Superclasico) will be played on the 10th round (October 19th) in the Monumental. Meanwhile, what could be an extremely decisive match vs. Estudiantes will be played on the last round. Both River and Estudiantes have been some of the most competitive teams in Argentina recently, so it wouldn't be crazy to consider that the winner of this game could be the one lifting the trophy. The following is the complete list of match dates the "millonarios" will encounter this season:

1st Round - 08/10/2008 - Colon - River Plate
2nd Round - 08/17/2008 - River Plate - Rosario Central
3rd Round - 08/24/2008 - Banfield - River Plate
4th Round - 08/31/2008 - River Plate - San Lorenzo
5th Round - 09/14/2008 - Arsenal - River Plate
6th Round - 09/17/2008 - River Plate - Velez Sarsfield
7th Round - 09/21/2008 - San Martin (Tucuman) - River Plate
8th Round - 09/28/2008 - River Plate - Racing Club
9th Round - 10/05/2008 - Gimnasia (LP) - River Plate
10th Round - 10/19/2008 - River Plate - Boca Juniors

18th Round - 12/07/2008 - River Plate - Godoy Cruz
19th Round - 12/14/2008 - Estudiantes (LP) - River Plate

As far as pre-season friendly matches go, I haven't heard anything official but we are rumored to face both Godoy Cruz and San Martin de Tucuman (the two teams who have been promoted to the first division this season) towards the end of July. Updates will be posted ASAP.
