Boca Juniors fans detained in Paraguay for acts of vandalism

When it comes to continental competition between legendary Argentine rivals Boca Juniors and River Plate, most of the time it is the Boca fan base that ends up celebrating.
Boca Juniors fans attacked bystanders and smashed automobile windshields on Thursday.

ASUNCION, Paraguay -- More than 200 fans supporting Argentine giants Boca Juniors were detained in Paraguay for acts of vandalism at a Copa Libertadores last-16 match against local club Cerro Porteno.

Local police on Friday said the fan groups were being held in a stadium on the outskirts of the capital Asuncion with plans to transfer them to another stadium in the city.

The fan groups, known in Spanish as barrasbravas, got off buses and attacked bystanders and smashed automobile windshields. They...

Pumas and Toluca facing tough tasks in Copa Libertadores

Jose Cardozo
After surviving a group that included 2014 winners San Lorenzo, Jose Cardozo's Toluca now take aim at Sao Paulo.

Toluca and Pumas are each looking to make history in the Copa Libertadores.

Both sides emerged with just one loss each during the group stage of the competition and will hope to become the first Liga MX club to lift the South American trophy. Mexican teams have finished the tournament as finalists in three separate occasions (Cruz Azul in 2001, Chivas in 2010 and Tigres in 2015), but have never been able to take that final step.

Now, in the round of 16, both clubs are one step closer to winning...

Excited dog interrupts Deportivo Tachira's win over Pumas

Deportivo Tachira players try to catch the dog during their 1-0 victory.

The recent Copa Libertadores encounter between Venezuela's Deportivo Tachira and Mexico's Pumas had to be temporarily halted for a few minutes when one excitable little fan came charging out onto the pitch and began leaping around the players.

The interloper in question was actually a particularly enthusiastic dog, who bounded around from man to man, desperately searching for a playmate.

The canine pitch invader was eventually rounded up by Pumas defender Gerardo Alcoba, who swiftly found himself...

Independiente del Valle, Cerro Porteno seek Copa Libertadores surprises

Independiente del Valle celebrating
Independiente del Valle will be looking to take down 2015 champions River Plate in the Copa Libertadores round of 16.

Independiente del Valle are a tiny Ecuadorean team from the outskirts of Quito, the capital city. Their stadium holds little more than 7,000 people, and the club have gone through most of their six decades in considerable obscurity.

In the last few years, though, they have made dramatic strides -- all with a model of administration based on finding and grooming young talent. Jefferson Montero, the winger now at Swansea City, is probably their most famous graduate.

The club are now starting to make...

Copa Libertadores pits Brazil vs. Argentina in intriguing last-16 ties

Robinho and Atletico Mineiro are fancied to beat Racing but the Copa Lib is known for its unpredictability.

On Wednesday the knockout phase of the Copa Libertadores really gets serious: three games, five former champions and two big clashes between clubs from Brazil and Argentina. It's perhaps surprising that all of this is coming so soon, in the round of 16 rather than in the quarterfinals. Come the end of next week, some major challengers will have left the competition.

The day kicks off with one of those Argentina-Brazil confrontations. In Buenos Aires, Racing play host to Atletico Mineiro, the 2013...
