Brazilian Championship set to kick off, Chape look to retain first-division spot

Gabriel Jesus of Palmeiras celebrates with Brazilian Series A 2016 the trophy.
Sao Paulo side Palmeiras won the 2016 Brazilian Championship with current Manchester City man Gabriel Jesus.

As the European leagues wind down, so the Brazilian Championship gets underway. The action starts this weekend and goes all the way through to the start of December.

It is an unorthodox calendar and one that is no doubt holding back the Brazilian game. For political reasons, the year begins with the state championships, one for each of the country's 27 states. These in their present form are outdated competitions -- crowds of fewer than 500 outnumber those above 5000 by nearly three to one. They...

Atletico Nacional beat Chapecoense for Recopa title on celebratory night

Chapecoense visited the site of November's crash ahead of the Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional.

More than five months after that tragic air crash, Chapecoense made it safely up to Medellin to face Atletico Nacional in a game that will enrich the history of football.

In the wake of the tragedy the two clubs became firm friends, and the ties were strengthened on a moving night in Medellin.

Centre-back Neto, one of the survivors, met up with the Colombian policeman who found him lying in the wreckage and began his rescue at a moment when the search was in danger of being abandoned. A ceremony...

After rebuilding, Chapecoense finally meet Atletico Nacional in Medellin

Chapecoense, the Brazilian club that suffered the air disaster at the end of November, had a reason to smile on Sunday, when their rebuilt team landed the local title. For the sixth time, and the second year in succession, they are champions of Santa Catarina, one of the 27 states that make up this giant country.

It was an emotional celebration, with coach Vagner Mancini and his players paying tribute to those who died over five months ago. Being champions of their southern state is evidence...

Quintero to relight spark of once promising career with Medellin in Copa

Juan Fernando Quintero was once hailed as the future of Colombian football. He may still be.

There are not too many stars from the 2014 World Cup in action in the 2017 Copa Libertadores. True, Brazil's much-maligned centre-forward Fred is still banging in the goals for Atletico Mineiro, where Ecuador centre-back Frickson Erazo is recovering from injury. A compatriot of his, once of Major League Soccer, Oswaldo Minda is a substitute for Barcelona of Guayaquil. And a trio of Uruguayan players have returned home to round out their careers: defenders Jorge Fucile and Alvaro Gonzalez with Nacional...
