Cicero hands Gremio advantage in Copa Libertadores final first leg

The first leg between Gremio and Lanus was a struggle for both sides, who weren't able to get open for many chances.

For the first time in five years the Copa Libertadores comes to a conclusion with a final between teams from the continent's great rivals. The first leg went to Brazil, with Gremio beating Lanus of Argentina with the only goal of the game.

It seemed clear right from the kick off that this would not be an open, flowing spectacle. The Lanus wingers, Alejandro Silva and Lautaro Acosta, immediately positioned themselves deep, more concerned with blocking the forward runs of the Gremio full-backs than...

The individual used drones, as well as cameras hidden in trees, buildings and walls to tip the Porto Alegre club on on the strategies...

Upstart Lanus look to spring a surprise vs. storied Gremio in Libertadores final

Luan is perhaps the best player in Brazil, and he'll be out to lead Gremio to continental glory.

For the first time since 2012, the Copa Libertadores' two-legged final is between teams from Brazil and Argentina. And to add extra attraction, both Gremio and Lanus are attractive sides who generally demonstrate a commitment to eye-pleasing, attacking football.

Perhaps inevitably, though, there is some controversy in the build-up to Wednesday's first leg. Gremio stand accused of hiring a specialist to spy on Lanus training sessions with the use of a drone. The Brazilian club deny all knowledge...
