Botafogo know who they are, and it is working in Copa Libertadores

Joao Paulo's chip shot proved to be the winner for Botafogo against Nacional.

Three things from Thursday night at the Copa Libertadores.

1. Botafogo are a strong bet to reach quarterfinals

Botafogo of Rio have never won the Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League, or even reached the final, and they are taking part in the competition for only the fifth time.

This will come as a surprise to many. Together with Santos, Botafogo supplied many of the great names of the Brazil sides that won the World Cups of 1958, '62 and '70 -- Garrincha, Didi, Nilton Santos, Zagallo...

Lucas Lima shows the way for Santos, while Palmeiras lack direction

Lucas Lima (10) has had his struggles of late, but he was on form Wednesday night against Atletico Paranaense.

Three things from Wednesday night at the Copa Libertadores.

1. Lucas Lima is a class act

Just over a year ago, attacking midfielder Lucas Lima came in for some heavy criticism when Brazil were knocked out of the Copa Centenario in the group phase; there is a lot of pressure on anyone handed the No. 10 shirt. Since coach Tite took over, he has been dropped from the team and for the last set of World Cup qualifiers from the squad as well. But he remains a highly useful player -- it is hard to think...

Floodlights, new River players make for Copa Libertadores knockout drama

Ignacio Scocco scored the first of River Plate's goals as they took a big step toward the quarterfinals.

It is a new Copa Libertadores with a fresh calendar -- and some of the same old problems. The match between Guarani of Paraguay and Argentina's River Plate suffered an 11-minute hold up because of an old fashioned floodlight failure -- not an uncommon event at Asuncion's Defensores del Chaco Stadium.

This was always a game likely to generate more heat than light, though, for two reasons.

One was the fact that two River Plate players tested positive in post-match drug tests towards the end of the...

New Copa Libertadores schedule causing complications for teams

The Copa Libertadores' scheduling format puts Argentine clubs such as River Plate at a disadvantage.

South America's Champions League, the Copa Libertadores, returns this week in its new format. And as the knockout stage kicks off, the differences kick in.

What has changed is the timing. The competition still features 32 teams in four groups of eight, with the best 16 playing two-legged, home-and-away knockout ties all the way up to and including the final. But now it is stretched out over a much longer time frame.

Previously, the knockout games began straight after the completion of the group...

River Plate's Camilo Mayada, Lucas Martinez test positive at Copa Lib

River Plate resume the Copa Libertadores on July 4.

River Plate have announced that their players, Camilo Mayada and Lucas Martinez Quarta, tested positive for a banned substance during the Copa Libertadores.

The Argentinian giants were notified this week by CONMEBOL, the South American Football Confederation, that hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic, had been found on the two players' samples.

Uruguay international midfielder Mayada failed a doping test on May 18 after a 3-2 win over Peruvian side Melgar while the test on Argentinian defender Martinez...
