Chile to host revamped '19 Copa Libertadores final; Peru gets Sudamericana

ASUNCION, Paraguay -- Chile has been chosen to host the final of the 2019 Copa Libertadores, the first to be played as a one-off game at a neutral venue, the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) said on Tuesday.

The game, South America's equivalent of the Champions League, will take place at the National Stadium in Santiago, probably in November next year.

The Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League, probably blundered last year when it gave out more places to clubs from Brazil and Argentina.

There is a real possibility that the two traditional nations will provide all eight of this year's quarterfinalists, which is hardly good news for the development of the game across the continent.

Independiente frustrate Flamengo to reclaim Copa Sudamericana

It was time for selfies after Independiente won their first Copa Sudamericana since 2010.

The Copa Sudamericana is the continent's second-string competition, a Europa League equivalent that in terms of importance and prestige comes a long way behind the main event, the Copa Libertadores.

But two giants of South American football fought out the final of the 2017 Copa Sudamericana as if it were the biggest trophy in the world. Both had their reasons. Flamengo of Brazil are a massive club, which in recent times have passed through plenty of international frustrations. They were only in...
