The Argentine club lost to Independiente by a final aggregate score of 2-1, after failing to overcome a two-goal deficit from the first leg in Ecuador.

River dominated possession and shots on goal, but could only find the net once, when substitute Lucas Alario scored from close range to give the hosts a late 1-0 lead in the 79th minute.

Toluca and manager Jose Cardozo in major trouble after Sao Paulo loss

Sao Paulo celeb vs Toluca 160429
Sao Paulo left Toluca with little to celebrate and plenty of work to do after the first leg.

After allowing five goals during the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, Toluca fell apart in the first leg of the round of 16 with a 4-0 away loss to Sao Paulo. The Brazilian side was dominant during Thursday night and was unlucky to not have a couple more goals sneak past Toluca goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera.

Los Diablos Rojos now have an intimidating task at hand and will likely need one of their best-ever performances next week during the second leg in Toluca.

Sao Paulo survive The Strongest, altitude to book Copa Lib last-16 spot

Sao Paulo overcame the altitude and pressure to draw 1-1 vs. The Strongest and stay alive in the Copa Lib.

The group phase of the Copa Libertadores came to a close with some home drama at high altitude, which had always looked possible ever since Brazil's Sao Paulo suffered a shock home defeat against The Strongest of Bolivia in the opening week.

The return match brought the group phase to a close, with the 16th and last place in the knock-out stage was at stake. All Sao Paulo had to do was avoid defeat but at the extreme altitude of La Paz, 3,600 metres above sea level, lasting the 90 minutes is never...

Former champs in trouble as Copa Libertadores group stage winds down

Sao Paulo have had to bounce back from an opening-round loss against The Strongest.

Some former champions have already bitten the dust in the 2016 version of the Copa Libertadores.

The first winners and five-times champions Penarol of Uruguay have not even managed to win a game this year, and victory this week in their final fixture at home to Peru's Sporting Cristal would be nothing more than a consolation. Three-times champions Olimpia of Paraguay have fallen short. Chile's only winners, Colo Colo, and LDU, the lone Ecuadorian team to lift the trophy, have also failed to make...

Copa Libertadores tense as Sao Paulo, River Plate fight to avoid elimination

Sao Paulo are one of the biggest teams in the Copa Lib but their path to the knockout round is far from secure.

There are still 11 places up for grabs in the knockout stage of the Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League. With two weeks of group games to go, five teams have already booked their passage.

Atletico Nacional of Colombia have sailed through, winning all four of their games so far, while the two Liga MX sides, Toluca and Pumas, have also made short work of earning their place in the last 16. Nacional of Uruguay, tight in defence and with a sharp counter-attack, have ground their way...
