Best and worst of football fandom firmly on display this past week in Brazil

Chile's Union La Calera showed the ultimate class in their Copa Sudamericano tie with Chapecoense.
Chile's Union La Calera showed nothing but pure class in their Copa Sudamericana tie with Chapecoense.

The passions that football engenders have a huge capacity to bring to the surface some of the best and the worst of the human being. The game can forge international friendships, and it can turn neighbours into enemies. Both sides of the balance sheet have been on show in Brazil in the past few days.

On Sunday, a local cup final in Rio de Janeiro turned into an object lesson of the dangers of adults acting like children, and a warning of what can happen when teams see each other as enemies rather...

Atletico Paranaense's Copa Sudamericana triumph will fuel Brazilian club's ambition

Atletico Paranaense's triumph in the Copa Sudamericana over Junior of Colombia gives the Brazilian side their first ever South American trophy.

Typically, when finals go to a penalty shoot-out, there is a feeling that either side could come out on top. But that hardly applied to the 2018 Copa Sudamericana.

Atletico Paranaense of Brazil had been forced to substitute their entire attacking line in the course of an epic 120 minutes against Atletico Junior of Colombia. Even so, there seemed little chance of the Colombians prevailing from the spot. Just over a year ago they blew the chance of reaching the 2017 Copa Sudamericana final by missing...

Atletico Paranaense defeated Atletico Junior 4-3 on penalties (2-2 aggregate) to win the 2018 CONMEBOL Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday night.

The win over the Colombian visitors in South America's second-most important club competition gives the Brazilian side their first ever continental triumph.

After a 1-1 stalemate at the conclusion of 90 minutes at Arena da Baixada, Junior had an opportunity to take the lead in the 111th minute, but Jarlan Barrera botched a penalty and sailed it into the stands. 

Atletico Junior, Atletico-PR draw in Copa Sudamericana first leg

In last week's semifinal of the Copa Sudamericana, Atletico Junior of Colombia wasted a penalty in front of their own fans in Barranquilla. James Sanchez had a weak shot saved. But it hardly mattered. Against fellow Colombians Santa Fe, Junior were a goal up on the night and 3-0 ahead on aggregate, and that is the way that it stayed. 

This week's penalty miss may prove more costly. Sanchez had already been substituted when Junior were awarded a spot kick against Brazil's Atletico Paranaense....

Copa Sudamericana reaches its climax as Junior and Atletico Paranaense meet

Amid all the fuss about the River Plate-Boca Juniors game being transferred to Madrid, it is easy to forget that a continental final will take place on South American soil this week and next. The Copa Sudamericana, the Europa League equivalent, comes to a climax with a two-legged decider between Junior of Colombia and Atletico Paranaense of Brazil -- and the home-and-away format means that the matches are taking place at opposite ends of the continent.

This Wednesday, they meet in Barranquilla,...
