River Plate beat Athletico Paranaense to capture the Recopa Sudamericana.

Stoppage time goals from Lucas Pratto and Matias Suarez helped River Plate to a 3-0 win over Athletico Paranaense on Thursday and gave the Argentine club their third South American Recopa triumph.

The Brazilians won the first leg by a solitary goal but goals in the 91st and 94th minutes followed an earlier strike from Ignacio Fernandez and were enough to make it 3-1 on aggregate and secure a trophy decided annually between the winners of South America's two premier club competitions.

Athletico Paranaense must deliver in Copa Libertadores to confirm 'big club' status

There are few more explosive issues in Brazil than the thorny question of how many genuinely big clubs the country can count on. It is a subject where once the touch paper has been lit, it is advisable to retreat to a safe distance.

A leading local analyst of football finance was in the eye of the storm last week for arguing that, in truth, just four of Brazil's clubs are currently worthy of the title -- Flamengo of Rio plus the trio of Sao Paulo and their local rivals Palmeiras and Corinthians.

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....
