I didn't want to start a new thread for this and since I used to post South American results on the old thread, I decided to post it here.
Copa Libertadores and Sudamericana have reached the quarterfinal stages. Both River Plate and Boca Jrs were eliminated in the round of 16, River by Velez Sarsfield 1-0 on aggregate and Boca by Corinthians 0-0 aggregate and 6-5 on penalties. Here are the quarterfinals (2-4 Aug & 9-11 Aug).
The tie getting all the hype is defending Brazil Serie A champions and Copa do Brasil holders Atletico Mineiro vs 2x Libertadores holders Palmeiras.
Copa Libertadores: higher seed hosts 2nd leg.
(12) Athletico Paranaense - Estudiantes (4)
( 5 ) Atletico Mineiro - Palmeiras (1)
(13) Corinthians - Flamengo (3)
(15) Velez Sarsfield - Talleres de Cordoba (10)

Copa Sudamericana:
(14) Deportivo Tachira - Independiente del Valle (10)
( 6 ) Melgar - Internacional Porto Alegre (5)
(12) Nacional Montevideo - Goianiense (3)
( 2 ) Sao Paulo - Ceara (1)

No, we should have an „Other World Football“ thread - nothing wrong with that.

I’ll sort one, and move these posts.

Another stalwart we lost in the recent Forum issues, so,I’ve recreated it here.

South American football (always worth a watch for the skill and technique), plus the North American game, such as the MLS and the Liga-MX, plus anything from Asia, like the J-League and K-League, discussion, reports, players to watch, Cup competitions, it all goes here!

Gareth Bale scores his first for LAFC in a 2-0 win over Sporting Kansas City. Well worked between him and LA's star Colombian Arango.

The first leg of the highly anticipated Libertadores quarterfinal between defending Brasileiro Serie A champ/Copa do Brasil holders Atletico Mineiro and 2 time defending Libertadores holders Palmeiras took place at the Mineirao on Wednesday. After going down 2-0 Palmeiras fought back to claim a 2-2 draw. Here are the highlights. It also includes a certain Gustavo Scarpa.
