 Copa Libertadores
Topic Originator: saltonsgonagetu  
Date:   Mon 14 Dec 21:09

The BBC will show seven remaining games from the Copa Libertadores, including both semi-finals and the final.

The first to be shown is the quarter-final second-leg tie between Nacional and 2019 runners-up River Plate at 00:30 GMT on Friday, 18 December.

The second leg of the all-Argentine last-eight tie between Racing and Carlos Tevez's Boca Juniors is live at the same time on Thursday, 24 December.

Both will be on the BBC Sport website, Red Button and iPlayer.

The Copa Libertadores is South America's equivalent of the Champions League, featuring the most successful sides from across the continent.

Like most football across the globe this year, its schedule has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, with the tournament suspended after matchday two of the group stage before resuming on 15 September.

There is a special poignancy this year with one of the competition's most decorated sides, Boca Juniors, competing shortly after the death of their former player and football icon Diego Maradona.

River Plate have also recently lost a prominent former player in Alejandro Sabella, who, like Maradona, is also an ex-Argentine international player and coach.

The holders of the Copa Libertadores are Brazilian side Flamengo, who were knocked out in the last 16 by Racing.

Three other Brazilian sides remain in the competition - Gremio, Santos and Palmeiras - with the first two meeting each other in the quarters.

Uruguayans Nacional are top of their domestic league.

Paraguayan side Libertad - who face Palmeiras - complete the list of the last eight.

The final of the tournament will be held on 30 January 2021 at the famous Maracana in Rio, Brazil.

Copa Libertadores quarter-finals (all times GMT)
1st leg 2nd leg
Gremio (Bra) v Santos (Bra) 1-1 16 Dec (22:15)
River Plate (Arg) v Nacional (Uru) 2-0 18 Dec (00:30)
Libertad (Par) v Palmeiras (Bra) 1-1 16 Dec (00:30)
Racing (Arg) v Boca Juniors (Arg) 17 Dec (00:30) 24 Dec (00:30)

Bit late with the head up but the second leg between Boca v Racing Club is about to start. Despite Boca being heavy favourites at the bookies I quite fancy Racing to go through.

Are the semi finals not two leg affairs, Salton?

The draw has worked out very nicely. We could see an all Brazilian final, an Argentina - Brazil final or even a repeat of the 2018 Boca v River Clasico.

salton ...surely the river plate first penalty was a stone waller ?

Probably shouldn`t be surprised but the amount of play acting and rolling about time-wasting last night was unreal after Santos went ahead. Thought that aspect may have improved without any fans there.A shame really as occasionally some decent football broke out.

They don't do it for the fans benefit, though......

I'm pretty sure there was some stats after the bundesliga restarted last year, that the amount of fouls awarded were significantly less without fans.

D'you not think that might be down to referees not being influenced to give free kicks by loud howls from the fans, every time one of their team falls over?

Boca Juniors have won the inaugural Diego Armando Maradona Cup by beating Banfield 5-3 on penalties.
Maradona died in November and Argentina renamed its League Cup in honour of the great, who was a former Boca player.
