After Argentina's disappointing exit from the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the country's football clubs are busy preparing for the beginning of the domestic league, which kicks off this coming weekend.
Outgoing Copa Libertadores champions Estudiantes de La Plata and the country's most famous club, Boca Juniors, who have been struggling recently, will be hoping to be among those challenging for the 2010 Apertura title.
Reigning Copa Libertadores champions Estudiantes will be hoping to regain the form that led them to the runners-up spot in the Clausura last season.
Former player Alejandro Sabella remains as manager, although he's the favourite to pick up the reigns from Diego Maradona as coach of the national team.
The club's last big success came when they won the Copa Libertadores in 2009 and midfielder Rodrigo Brana referred to that triumph when he was asked what the prospects were the campaign ahead.
Estudiantes midfielder Ridrugo Brana said, "What we achieved in the Copa Libertadores was very important. As everyone knows, to win the Copa Libertadores is very complicated. So having won this very important title we are making the most of it, but what has to be said now is that we are at the beginning of the championship, and everything else comes after that."
Following several seasons off the pace, Boca Juniors are hoping to rediscover their past glories.
Arguably Argentina's most famous club side, Boca have a new coach in place in Claudio Borghi - and are determined to erase the memory of last year's 16th-place finish in the 'Clausura'.
Boca Juniors Manager Claudio Borghi said, "We have just one week to go before the championship starts. It was a really special break due to the World Cup - it took up a lot of time. We have come from a tour and amazingly we still have not finalized the team selection. I believe it's actually not going to be set for another week because there are always possibilities of renewing contracts and also the chance that some players might leave."
Boca begin their campaign away to Godoy Cruz de Mendoza on Sunday while Estudiantes are at Newell's Old Boys the day before.
