It's always special when Argentina and Brazil play, even if this time Argentina goes into the match without Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero.

No such problem for Brazil. Neymar is healthy and back from suspension for the World Cup qualifier on Thursday at Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires.

"Every absence is important," Argentina coach Gerardo Martino said, but acknowledged some such as Messi and Aguero are more critical than others. "We'll have to change our mindset to beat Brazil."

Neither team showed much in its first two qualifiers last month.

Boca Juniors were crowned Argentine champions on Sunday with one game to spare after Fabian Monzon’s first half header helped them beat Tigre at the Bombonera.

They will now turn their attention to the Copa Argentina final and the chance to seal a memorable league and cup double when they take on Rosario Central in midweek.

Inspired by Carlos Tevez, who returned to the club earlier this year, it is the 31st title the club has won — only fierce rivals River Plate, with 36, have registered more.

Despite interest from European clubs in the summer, Tevez made an emotional decision to return to Boca, where had previously played from 2001 to 2004 before a move to Brazilian side Corinthians.

He has since represented West Ham, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus, but his heart had always been set on a return to the Buenos Aires club.

Five league goals have followed since his return, and, speaking on television in Argentina after... (Read More)

Purple garlic that is losing its color? More translucent wine? Climate change will also affect the flavours of our food in the absence of measures to mitigate the impacts of global warming, which are already being felt in crops that are basic to local economies, such as in the Argentine province of Mendoza.

An exposition by the National University of Cuyo (UNCuyo), during the Climate Change Forum held in October in Mendoza, the capital of the province of the same name, organised jointly with the United Nations Development Programme (UNCP), raised the subject.

“Will climate change affect the quality of malbec?” read one sign at the exposition, referring to Argentina’s most characteristic wine.

“The rise in temperature... (Read More)

HOURS before the official results began to circulate on October 25th, campaign workers for Daniel Scioli, the front-runner in Argentina’s presidential election, handed out orange T-shirts, baseball caps and pens emblazoned in capital letters with the legend “president”. Pollsters were not sure whether Mr Scioli, who is running as the heir of the Peronist president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, would win outright in the first round or move on to a run-off against Mauricio Macri, the mayor of Buenos Aires. No one doubted that he would be well ahead.

The results are therefore a shock. With 97% of the votes counted, Mr Scioli, the candidate of the Peronist Front for Victory (FPV), has 36.9% of the vote, which puts him barely in front of Mr Macri, who has 34.3%. There will be a run-off on November 22nd. Mr Macri, who is campaigning under the banner of Cambiemos (Let’s Change), an alliance of non-Peronist parties that promises to break with the divisive populism of Ms Fernández, now seems to have a good chance of winning.

If he does, he will set a different tone for the country. Unlike Ms Fernández and her late husband, Néstor Kirchner, who preceded her as president, Mr Macri favours markets instead of state controls, is friendly to the outside world and an advocate of strong institutions rather than obedient ones. Mr Macri would undo much of the Kirchners’ legacy, though he has promised to keep parts of it (see article). He would be the first president since Argentina returned to democracy in 1983 who is neither a... (Read More)

European rugby has been put firmly in its place as Argentina swept into the quarter-finals of the World Cup with a comprehensive 43-20 victory over Six Nations champions Ireland at Millenium Stadium today.

Ireland may have been missing captain Paul O’Connell, flyhalf Jonny Sexton and brilliant backrowers Peter O’Mahony and the suspended Sean O’Brien and certainly they showed a lot of character in fighting back from 17-0 down to trail only 20-17 shortly after halftime but always the Pumas were able to exploit the narrow green-shirted defence out wide.

Irish captain Jamie Heaslip could barely contain his disappointment. “We didn’t lift ourselves and we gave them too much lead at the start,” he said. “Argentina really... (Read More)
