Copa Libertadores

 By Tim Vickery

Breaking the Argentina-Brazil stranglehold on the Copa Libertadores

Argentina's San Lorenzo won the 2014 Copa Libertadores over Paraguay's Nacional.

There was a time when people could talk of a big three in the Copa Libertadores -- but Uruguay have slipped off the podium. Between them, the Montevideo giants Penarol and Nacional have 8 titles, but the last was in 1988 -- only once since then has a Uruguayan side reached the final. In a globalised world, it is very hard for Uruguayan clubs to compete when the population of the country is little more than 3 million.

Which leaves, then, a big two: Argentina and Brazil. The two leading footballing...

With the group stage of the Copa Libertadores now complete, it's time to take a look at the five biggest talking points from South America's biggest club competition.

1. If getting there is hard, staying there is harder

San Lorenzo's reign as champions came to a melancholy end with the team beaten 1-0 at home by Danubio of Uruguay, who had lost all their previous matches.

Copa Libertadores group stage finale promises spectacle and surprises

Expect plenty of highs and not-so-highs during this week's Copa Libertadores action.

It's time to dot every last 'I' and cross the final 'T' in the group stage of the 2015 Copa Libertadores.

Seven teams have already booked their place in the knockout stage of South America's top club competition, while nine slots remain. With fifteen teams having a mathematical chance of claiming those vacant places, this is how the action will play out over the next couple of days.

Clubs from Venezuela, Peru limp out of Libertadores in very different ways

While the big boys of Argentina and Brazil will be well-represented in the knockout phase, clubs from Venezuela and Peru will watch from home.

The big boys from Argentina -- Boca Juniors, River Plate and Racing -- have all qualified for the knockout stages of the Copa Libertadores, along with Corinthians of Brazil, who should be joined by plenty of compatriots in the next few days.

Mexico, Paraguay and Uruguay also have guaranteed representation in the last 16.

Colombia should, too, as both teams from the country head their group going into next week's final round. Bolivia have two teams still well in contention, and Emelec of Ecuador...

Peru striker Paolo Guerrero diagnosed with dengue fever in Brazil

Corinthians striker Paolo Guerrero will be sidelined for about two weeks.

SAO PAULO -- A Brazilian hospital says Peru striker Paolo Guerrero has dengue fever.

The Corinthians player has been hospitalised since Saturday with high fever and body pain. Doctors suspected the mosquito-borne disease was to blame and tests released on Tuesday confirmed the diagnosis.

The 28-year-old striker is expected to be sidelined for about two weeks. He already missed Corinthians' match in the Sao Paulo state championship on Saturday and will not be able to play in the final stages of the...
