Chapecoense knocked out of Copa Libertadores by Nacional

Brazil's Chapecoense was knocked out by Uruguay's Nacional in the Copa Libertadores.

Uruguay is limited by its size....

Chapecoense want Nacional expelled from Copa Lib for fan behaviour

On August 7th, Chapecoense's Alan Ruschel played in his first game since the tragic plane crash in November 2016.

ASUNCION, Paraguay -- Brazilian football club Chapecoense have asked South America's football governing body to expel Uruguayan club Nacional from the Copa Libertadores after some of their fans mocked the plane crash that killed most of the Chapecoense squad two years ago.

Chapecoense said Friday they asked CONMEBOL to postpone the teams' second-leg match on Wednesday if it can't make a ruling on their request by then. The request is based on tournament rules set by CONMEBOL that make clubs responsible...
