Independiente Santa Fe pip Huracan on penalties in Sudamericana final

Santa Fe players celebrate
Independiente Santa Fe players celebrate after winning Wednesday's Copa Sudamericana final.

Argentina's recent stranglehold on South American club competitions came to an end on Wednesday night. After two goalless draws, Huracan were beaten on penalties in the final of the Copa Sudamericana by Independiente Santa Fe of Colombia.

There were wild celebrations in Bogota's El Campin stadium; this is Santa Fe's first continental title -- as it would have been, too, for Huracan had they prevailed. For contrasting reasons, then, both sets of supporters will remember this final.

It is highly unlikely,...

Honours even as Huracan, Santa Fe draw Copa Sudamericana final first leg

Ramon Abila
Ramon Abila, right, was not able to find the breakthrough for Huracan in their Copa Sudamericana final first leg versus Santa Fe.

Wednesday's first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final produced no goals in Buenos Aires -- leaving everything to play for next week in Bogota. Huracan of Argentina and Colombia's Independiente Santa Fe drew 0-0, a result that will please the first leg visitors more than the hosts.

Huracan took the field determined to build a lead in front of their own fans, but were thwarted and frustrated by talented, well-drilled opponents.

The key battle always looked like being that between Huracan's centre-forward...

Huracan, Sante Fe get shot at first continental title in Copa Sudamericana

Independiente Sante Fe
Players from Independiente Sante Fe celebrate passage into the finals of the Copa Sudamericana.

A new name will be on a South American trophy. Neither Huracan of Argentina nor Independiente Santa Fe of Colombia have ever won a major continental competition. Now they meet in the final of the Copa Sudamericana, the continent's equivalent of the Europa League. After next week's second leg in Colombia after Wednesday's first leg of the two-legged final, one of them will be taking a historic lap of honour.

The fact that neither can yet point to a continental trophy is not evidence of lack of tradition....

Sportivo Luqueno, Santa Fe look to break Argentina's cup dominance

Sportivo Luqueno's players celebrate their Copa Sudamericana quarterfinal win over Paranaense.

Argentina's national team may have been waiting a long time for a senior title, but at club level the country is currently monopolizing the continental titles.

The Copa Libertadores -- the one that matters most -- was won by River Plate this year and San Lorenzo in 2014. The Sudamericana, a Europa League equivalent, went to Lanus in 2013, River Plate last year, and there is the guarantee of an Argentine finalist this time round, with the defending champions meeting Huracan in the semifinals.

Chapecoense face big test from River Plate in the Copa Sudamericana

River Plate marched past Quito in the previous round of the Copa Sudamericana.

Two months ago, 47 teams went into the Copa Sudamericana, the continent's Europa League equivalent. Now only eight remain, and all but three of them come from the continent's two major powers.

There is an artificial aspect to this tournament. With no group phase, the competition is home and away knock-out all the way from the start to the finish, which makes the draw in the early stages much easier to manipulate. And the Sudamericana is set up so that half of the places in the last 16 are reserved...
