Gremio deny Barcelona's comeback dreams, advance to Libertadores final

Gremio of Brazil lost its perfect record at home in the competition but gained a place in the Copa final.

Tuesday night produced one of the great comebacks in the history of South America's Copa Libertadores. In an all-Argentine semifinal, Lanus found themselves needing four goals in 46 minutes to overcome River Plate -- and they managed all four, reaching their first final in magnificent style.

Could Wednesday's semifinal match it for drama? The task ahead of Barcelona of Ecuador was, if anything, even more daunting than that which had faced Lanus. Barcelona had lost the first leg 3-0 at home to Gremio...

River Plate's Marcelo Gallardo blasts use of VAR in Copa Lib loss to Lanus

Alejandro Silva scored from the spot in the 69th minute to complete Lanus' comeback.

River Plate coach Marcelo Gallardo has questioned the implementation of VAR in South America after the club's surprise elimination from the Libertadores Cup semifinal on Tuesday at the hands of Lanus.

At the weekend River Plate and Lanus fielded reserve sides in their Argentine league games. Both lost 4-0, but they were happy to keep their stars fresh for this crunch meeting in the Copa Libertadores, South America's version of the Champions League. And what a night it turned out to be.

In last Tuesday's first semifinal leg, River Plate won by the only goal. Their victory was twofold. First, the obvious -- they were ahead at the halfway stage. Second, they had denied Lanus an away goal. Coach...

Barcelona's magical Copa Libertadores run hits snag in 3-0 defeat to Gremio

River Plate beat Lanus 1-0 in the first-leg of their all-Argentine Copa Libertadores semifinal.
Barcelona fell behind early Wednesday and now face a three-goal deficit going into the second leg.

The smart money in this new, year-long version of the Copa Libertadores was always on a final between clubs from Brazil and Argentina -- especially when, purely by coincidence, the draw for the knockout stages put almost all the teams from South America's two traditional powers in separate halves of the draw.

One half has gone as planned -- two Buenos Aires clubs are meeting in the semifinal, with River Plate ahead of Lanus 1-0 after the first leg.

But Barcelona of Ecuador had clearly not read the...
