We recently released our first South American league coverage with the addition of Brazilian Serie A and Serie B statistics. The second addition for that continent is the Argentine Superliga, which we now have coverage for back to the 2014 season when it was known as Primera División. This addition includes coverage of the 2019-20 season which just kicked off last weekend. We also have match logs for the Argentine league back to the 2015 season.
Some recent young Argentines with added history as a result of this addition include Lautaro Martínez and Giovani Lo Celso. Martínez scored 6 goals in his first season with Internazionale in the Italian Serie A, his followup to a 13-goal and 4-assist campaign with Racing Club in the 2017-18 Superliga season. Lo Celso led Betis in goals scored in the 2018-19 La Liga season, and was a key member of 2017-18 Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 championship; Lo Celso started his career with Rosario Central in Argentina. Also this catches up with players who had success in Europe who are wrapping up their careers in Argentina. For example, Lisandro López won 4 Primeira Liga championships with Porto and the 2009-10 Ligue 1 Male Player of the Year award with Lyon. In 2018-19 López was still going strong with Racing Club, leading the Superliga in goals scored with 17.
