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...

Moving the Copa Libertadores final to Lima another headache for CONMEBOL

CONMEBOL
CONMEBOL confirmed on Tuesday that the Copa Libertadores final between Flamengo and River Plate has been moved to Lima.

The Under-17 World Cup, currently taking place in Brazil, was supposed to happen in Peru. The country was stripped of its right to stage the tournament when FIFA was not satisfied with the guarantees offered by the Peruvian government.

And a new era of club football in South America was supposed to kick off in Peru this Saturday too. Lima, the capital, was chosen to stage the final of the Copa Sudamericana, the Europa League equivalent. Instead of the traditional home and away two legged final,...

Copa Libertadores final moved from Santiago to Lima due to unrest in Chile

River Plate celebrates
River Plate will defend their title against Flamengo in Lima, Peru later this month.

The Copa Libertadores final between Flamengo and River Plate has been moved to Lima, Peru from Santiago, Chile due to continuing unrest in the Chilean capital, the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) said on Tuesday.

The Nov. 23 final was due to be held at the National stadium, but Santiago has been beset by violence over the last few weeks as protests that began over a rise in metro fares have amplified and spread.

Millions have since marched against inequality in what have become...

Copa Libertadores: River Plate boss Marcelo Gallardo 'worried' Chile protests could move final

Protests in Chile have concerned River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo.

River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo said he is "worried" that protests in Chile could force a change in venue for his side's Copa Libertadores final against Flamengo on Nov. 23.

Chile's government and CONMEBOL on Wednesday insisted that the final is set to go ahead in Santiago, despite Chilean President Sebastian Pinera having called off the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and U.N. global climate gatherings earlier that day due to the unrest.

But the concerns remain a year after the return...

Manchester City reject Pablo Mari instrumental in Flamengo's Copa semifinal triumph

Pablo Mari
Centre-back Pablo Mari was one of the best players in Flamengo's Copa semifinal win -- just months after being cast aside from Man City.

In last year's Copa Libertadores, Brazilian team after Brazilian team crashed out of the competition showing an excess of caution.

There is no chance of that happening this time around with Flamengo. Since the mid-year appointment of Portuguese coach Jorge Jesus they have been swashbucklingly bold and on Wednesday confirmed their place in the Copa final with a 5-0 hammering of compatriots Gremio.

The worrying thing for next month's opponents, defending champions River Plate of Argentina, is that...
