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.
Universidad de Chile and Santos Mesmerize us in the last 16:
Chilean giants Universidad de Chile and last season’s Copa Libertadores winners Santos both struggled badly in the first leg away ties of the last 16. 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.

Despite being the world’s most popular sport, as an American I’ve noticed that some people perceive quality football to be monotonous. However, regardless of one’s level of passion for the sport I’ve found that a particular aspect of football fails to raise eyebrows. This aspect is flair. Even if one of my friends isn’t a football fan, if I show them a video of skillful football trickery, it’s something they realize is special and it impresses. Everyone loves seeing something done that defies expectations and as football fans, I’m sure we can all agree that nothing satisfies our appetite for flair like a good rainbow flick or a cryuff turn.
