Wednesday night’s match in the Copa Libertadores between Atlético Mineiro and Arsenal de Sarandi gave us a little bit of everything – beautiful goals, controversy and even some drama at the very end. It was a game that cemented the Brazilian side’s claim to be looked upon as one of the favourites now for this tournament. Atlético Mineiro have won 12 games in a row now and hold a 100% record in this year’s Copa Libertadores so far.

Tonight we saw the first leg of the Copa Libertadores final between Boca Juniors and Corinthians. As ever, the competition this season has been another drama filled spectacle, swinging from the sublime to the ridiculous. Here are some of the most memorable moments of the knock-out rounds so far.

Both teams were playing away at clubs in the highest capital cities of the world: Bolivar in La Paz (Bolivia) and Deportivo Quito in Quito (Ecuador). Altitude is often a major factor in these Copa Libertadores ties.
