Bruno, left, vies for the ball against Alejandro Hohberg in Sao Paulo's first leg clash with Cesar Vallejo.

The field of 38 clubs in this year's Copa Libertadores, South America's equivalent of the Champions League, contains a grand total of 15 former winners. Two of them, though, have to sweat through the qualifying round, which kicked off last week and concludes this, before they can take their place in the group stage

One of them, Sao Paulo of Brazil, will feel that they have a foot and a half in the next phase. In last Wednesday's first leg, they drew 1-1 away to Cesar Vallejo of Peru.

Edgardo Bauza, Facundo Sava face stiff Copa Libertadores tests

Facundo Sava
Facundo Sava will make his competitive debut as Racing coach on Wednesday against Liga MX side Puebla.

It is going to be a cruel summer for six teams in South America. The qualifying round of the Copa Libertadores, the continent's Champions League equivalent, kicks off on Tuesday and 12 sides will be reduced to six in the group phase.

The first legs are played this week, with the return games taking place next week -- which means that before mid-February, while Carnaval is still going on, the losing six will already have bowed out of the continent's main club event.

One tie leaps out as the outstanding...

Pato could sign with Italian clubs, says agent Riccardo Napolitano

With January's transfer window fast approaching, ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Shaka Hislop assess the latest round of rumours.

The agent for former Brazil international Alexandre Pato has revealed two or three Serie A clubs are in the running to land the Sao Paulo forward in January.

Pato has seen a once flagging career resurrected since moving back to Brazil in January of 2013, first with Corinthians, which own his rights, and most recently with Sao Paulo, where he has recaptured the form that once made him one of world football's top young prospects before injuries sidetracked his development.

Still only 26, the former...

Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato has set his sights on a move to the Premier League when the January transfer window opens, sources have told ESPN FC.

Pato saw his progress...
