Brazil and Argentina look to regain Copa Libertadores stranglehold

Flamengo supporters
Flamengo supporters will turn out in numbers at the Maracana stadium against San Lorenzo.

Last year, Atletico Nacional broke the monopoly of the big two on South America's premier club prize.

By winning the Copa Libertadores, the continent's Champions League equivalent, the Colombian side ensured that the trophy did not go either to Argentina or to Brazil first time since 2008.

Indeed, the Libertadores has only eluded the big two twice in the last 12 years and, for a number of reasons, it is hard to see it going anywhere else in 2017.

First, the holders are going through an inevitable...

Copa Libertadores gets new lease of life for 2017, but questions remain

Copa Libertadores
The Copa Libertadores will adopt a new format for the 2017 edition.

Until just a few years ago, the draw for the Copa Libertadores gave only the vaguest idea of what the tournament was going to look like.

The ceremony was held in November, before the South American championships had been decided. It was not yet clear which teams would be participating -- which made it hard to get excited about the prospect of a clash between Paraguay 2 and Ecuador 1.

Now, the draw is being held later. This year it is taking place on Wednesday -- the day the last ball is kicked in...

Atletico Nacional striker thanks Chapecoense fans for CWC backing

Orlando Berrio expressed his gratitude to Chapecoense fans.

Atletico Nacional striker Orlando Berrio thanked fans of Brazilian club Chapecoense for their support after his side finished third at the Club World Cup on Sunday.

The Colombian team had been due to play Chapecoense in the Copa Sudamericana final last month when the plane carrying the Brazilian team crashed, killing 71 people, 19 of them players.

"They [the Chapecoense fans] have all been behind us and that is one of the reasons why we were able to perform well," Berrio said after helping his...

FIFA ref's chief defends Club World Cup VAR trial after Ronaldo goal

FIFA's Head of Refereeing, Massimo Busacca, has defended the use of video replay that is being tested at the Club World Cup in Japan following criticism of the technology.

Video assistant referees (VAR) was used in an official FIFA match for the first time in Wednesday's semifinal between Atletico Nacional and Kashima Antlers to award a penalty.

It was also employed during Real Madrid's 2-0 triumph over Club America in the other semifinal.

Referee Enrique Caceres consulted the VAR system for a possible...

Atletico Nacional lose early in Club World Cup as VAR used for first time

In the 12-year history of the Club World Cup, it is hard to think of any South American champion that has played as well in the semifinal as Atletico Nacional -- even so, the Colombians lost 3-0 to Kashima Antlers of Japan.

How can such a scoreline be explained? There are a number of possible reasons -- not least that Video Assistant Referees (VAR) were used for the first time.

But one is the glorious unpredictability of the game itself. One of the great fascinations of football is that the best...
