Palmeiras call for CONMEBOL action after Copa Libertadores brawl

Ugly scenes marred the end of the Copa Libertadores match as a mass brawl broke out following the final whistle.
Palmeiras players face off with Penarol players after their Copa Libertadores match.

Palmeiras are hoping that CONMEBOL act swiftly and punish Uruguayan outfit Penarol following a brawl that marred their 3-2 come-from-behind triumph in Montevideo in the Copa Libertadores.

Brazil side Palmeiras trailed 2-0 at half-time but hit back for a 3-2 triumph on Wednesday that put them top of Group 5 with 10 points, while the hosts remained at the foot of the standings with just three points.

Instead of celebrating a victory after the final whistle, the Palmeiras players became engaged in...

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.

The weekend's clasico headlines naturally went to Lionel Messi, given his goals, which makes it easy to overlook the fact that four of the five goals in the Real Madrid-Barcelona game were scored by South Americans (Casemiro and James Rodriguez were on target for Real). Earlier in the day, Sergio Aguero and Alexis Sanchez both scored in the Arsenal-Manchester City FA Cup semifinal, with Willian scoring twice for Chelsea against Tottenham in Saturday's other semifinal.

The South American contribution...

Brazil recall for in-form Fred would be bizarre for long-term World Cup plans

Atletico Mineiro kept their Copa Libertadores hopes alive with a 2-0 win over Santa Fe.
Fred is in fine form, but a recall would surely make little sense. Brazil, after all, have no short-term needs.

Almost three years have passed since that surreal afternoon in Belo Horizonte when Brazil collapsed in the semifinals of the 2014 World Cup. Germany were five goals up at the interval. The home crowd had plenty of time to try to deal with the extraordinary event and as the second half painfully unfolded, they chose their scapegoat.

The crowd in the Mineirao stadium turned on striker Fred, playing in his home state. He was taken off in the second half. As the camera picked out his image on the...
