Brazilian side Gremio hired spy to film opponents' training sessions - report

Brazilian side Gremio employed a spy to film and photograph opponents' training sessions.

Copa Libertadores finalist Gremio have been spying on opponents throughout the 2017 season, according to ESPN Brasil.

A five-month investigation has revealed the two-time Brazilian champions hired an individual to film and photograph training sessions -- both open and closed -- of every Copa Libertadores, league and Copa do Brasil opponent during the current campaign.

The individual used drones, as well as cameras hidden in trees, buildings and walls to tip the Porto Alegre club on on the strategies...

Upstart Lanus look to spring a surprise vs. storied Gremio in Libertadores final

Luan is perhaps the best player in Brazil, and he'll be out to lead Gremio to continental glory.

For the first time since 2012, the Copa Libertadores' two-legged final is between teams from Brazil and Argentina. And to add extra attraction, both Gremio and Lanus are attractive sides who generally demonstrate a commitment to eye-pleasing, attacking football.

Perhaps inevitably, though, there is some controversy in the build-up to Wednesday's first leg. Gremio stand accused of hiring a specialist to spy on Lanus training sessions with the use of a drone. The Brazilian club deny all knowledge...

Gremio deny Barcelona's comeback dreams, advance to Libertadores final

Gremio of Brazil lost its perfect record at home in the competition but gained a place in the Copa final.

Tuesday night produced one of the great comebacks in the history of South America's Copa Libertadores. In an all-Argentine semifinal, Lanus found themselves needing four goals in 46 minutes to overcome River Plate -- and they managed all four, reaching their first final in magnificent style.

Could Wednesday's semifinal match it for drama? The task ahead of Barcelona of Ecuador was, if anything, even more daunting than that which had faced Lanus. Barcelona had lost the first leg 3-0 at home to Gremio...

Barcelona's magical Copa Libertadores run hits snag in 3-0 defeat to Gremio

River Plate beat Lanus 1-0 in the first-leg of their all-Argentine Copa Libertadores semifinal.
Barcelona fell behind early Wednesday and now face a three-goal deficit going into the second leg.

The smart money in this new, year-long version of the Copa Libertadores was always on a final between clubs from Brazil and Argentina -- especially when, purely by coincidence, the draw for the knockout stages put almost all the teams from South America's two traditional powers in separate halves of the draw.

One half has gone as planned -- two Buenos Aires clubs are meeting in the semifinal, with River Plate ahead of Lanus 1-0 after the first leg.

But Barcelona of Ecuador had clearly not read the...

River Plate, Barcelona host Copa Libertadores semis starting Tuesday

Striker Ignacio Scocco and River Plate host Lanus in an all-Argentine clash on Tuesday night.

Now that the drama of this month's FIFA dates is done and digested, the focus in South America switches to club football.

The Copa Libertadores, the continent's Champions League, has reached the semifinal stage.

Four teams from three different countries are left to fight for the trophy in what is a special year for the Libertadores.

Previously, the action was crammed into the first half of the year, with occasional brief extensions to allow for World Cups.

This year, though, the Libertadores...
