Independiente del Valle overcome all odds to win Copa Sudamericana

Cristian Dajome and Federico Lertola
The Copa Sudamericana final on Saturday was interrupted for over half an hour by a tropical downpour.

In the end, there was late drama and a historic result for a historic occasion. Tiny Independiente del Valle of Ecuador beat Colon of Argentina 3-1 to win the Copa Sudamericana, South America's equivalent of the Europa League.

In place of the traditional home-and-away, two-legged decider, the element of chance was introduced this year to both the Sudamerica and the Libertadores in the shape of a one-off final on neutral ground.

For a while, the local football authorities must have feared that the...

Independiente tasted Copa Sudamericana glory on Saturday.

Unheralded Ecuadorean side Independiente del Valle overcame a rain-sodden pitch to beat Argentina's Colon 3-1 and win the Copa Sudamericana on Saturday in a final interrupted for over half an hour by a tropical downpour.

The game kicked off a new era that will see South American club competition finals follow the European model and be played over one match in a neutral venue, but it was an inauspicious start in Asuncion, Paraguay.

Dark clouds gathered over the Nueva Olla stadium at kickoff...

Colon and Independiente del Valle a contrast in styles in Copa Sudamericana final

A new era in South American football kicks off in the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion on Saturday, but the momentous change seems very low key.

By tradition, the continent's international club competitions conclude with a two- legged, home and away final. Saturday, Nov. 9, marks the start of the age of a one-off final on a neutral ground.

This marks an important switch. But Saturday's game is flying under the radar. That is partly because it is the final of the Copa Sudamericana -- the second tier...

Ecuador's Independiente del Valle making noise in Copa Sudamericana against Argentine, Brazilian giants

Independiente del Valle players celebrate during a Copa Sudamericana match between Independiente del Valle and Universidad Catolica.
Independiente del Valle are proving to be Ecuador's Leicester in the Copa Sudamericana.

South America has its very own version of the 2015-16 vintage Leicester City, a mouse that roars so loudly that it turns into a lion.

In a scenario of continental club competitions dominated by Argentina and Brazil, little Independiente del Valle from Ecuador are bucking the trend. In 2016 they reached the final of the Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League, eliminating the Buenos Aires giants River Plate and Boca Juniors along the way. Now they have struck again, overcoming Independiente,...

Union-Independiente clash a study in Copa Sudamericana contrasts

Independiente del Valle of Ecuador has emerged as a club that produces top talent.

Second string cup competitions are an easy target. It is a comfortable position, for example, to sneer at the Thursday night football of the Europa League -- and if that applies to a tournament containing the likes of Benfica and Napoli, Arsenal and Chelsea, it is all the more true on the other side of the Atlantic. 

The Copa Libertadores came to life in 1960 as South America's response to the creation in Europe of the competition now known as the Champions League. The Libertadores has history...
