CUP FUTBOL

Copa Libertadores: Argentine giants are out. The title is likely to stay in Brazil.

Copa Libertadores (Round of 16)

With the Argentine giants (Boca Juniors and River Plate) out, the probability of a Brazilian club winning the Copa Libertadores just grew larger.

5 Brazilian clubs and 3 Argentine clubs made the final 8.
