Boca Juniors, Corinthians cruising in the Copa Libertadores

Corinthians' Elias celebrates his goal in the 2-0 win over fellow Brazilians Sao Paulo in the Copa Libertadores.

After five frenetic weeks of group phase action, the Copa Libertadores now takes a break. There are a couple games on April 1, but normal service is only resumed the following week. In three of the groups, the teams have played three of their six group games. In the other five groups, they have played four.

We are more than halfway through the phase. It is an appropriate moment, then, to reflect on what has happened so far.

The competition might lack the quality of Europe's Champions League, but...

An exciting Copa Libertadores is nearly halfway through the group stage.

Up until now, all but 8 of the field of 32 clubs have played three of their six group games. Only three teams have 100 percent records. And of that trio, only Boca Juniors of Argentina have played three times. Corinthians of Brazil and Colombia's Santa Fe will play their third match next week.

River Plate face pivotal Peruvian clash in the Copa Libertadores

River Plate's manager Marcelo Gallardo takes his squad to Peru on Thursday for a pivotal Copa Libertadores clash against Juan Aurich.

Those early predictions of a strong performance by the Argentine contingent in this year's Copa Libertadores have so far been confirmed.

Racing have a 100 percent record and have looked very impressive, Boca Juniors have won both their matches and are inching towards an identity and Estudiantes have made a solid start. Even little Huracan came back with a 0-0 draw from a visit to reigning Brazilian champions Cruzeiro.

True, last year's Copa Libertadores winners San Lorenzo went down last week 1-0...

Joffre Guerron, Tigres on track with Copa Libertadores draw vs. River Plate

The enduring image of the 2015 Copa Libertadores campaign for Tigres will be Joffre Guerron, bandaged head and all, celebrating after scoring his team's lone goal in their 1-1 draw versus River Plate.

The 2015 Copa Libertadores campaign for Liga MX side Tigres appears to already have what could be its defining image: Joffre Guerron running through to take the lead in the 40th minute in El Monumental against River Plate with his head bandaged up.

The Argentine giant came back on Thursday in the second half to tie the score 1-1 thanks to a Carlos Sanchez goal in the 73rd minute, but this was Tigres' night. As if it needs re-emphasizing, El Monumental is one of the most difficult stadiums to go...
