Ever since the current format of the FIFA Club World Cup was introduced in 2005, the semifinal stage has been an exercise in torture for South American champions.

First, there is almost too much at stake. The most powerful force in the competition is the desire of the Libertadores winners to have a crack at the European champions. As recently as two decades ago, this was an entirely fair fight. The sad truth, from the South American perspective, is that these days their representative is no longer...

Police cancel planned Boca Juniors 'fan day' amid security concerns

Riot police clashed with fans throwing glass bottles and objects after River Plate won the Copa Libertadores final against rivals Boca Juniors in Buenos Aires.

Copa Libertadores runners-up Boca Juniors were forced to cancel a planned "fan day" on Wednesday after the Buenos Aires security ministry determined it was unsafe for them to gather in the club's stadium, La Bombonera.
