It is all square after the first leg of the semifinals of the Copa Sudamericana, South America's Europa League equivalent.

Both games finished 1-1, and there is now a three week wait for the return matches, when one of two radically different scenarios could emerge.

The final could be between two teams entitled to feel somewhat blase about this competition, since they have recently claimed the Copa Libertadores -- the Champions League equivalent and by some distance the continent's most prestigious...
