Flamengo's Recopa win over Independiente a stepping stone to more glory

Everton Ribeiro of Flamengo lifts the champions trophy of the CONMEBOL Recopa Sudamericana 2020
Flamengo added another trophy to their collection.

Flamengo will soon need to build a new trophy cabinet. In a magical few months since Portuguese coach Jorge Jesus took over, the Rio de Janeiro giants have been accumulating plenty of silverware, and now they can add some more.

The latest is the Recopa, the South American Super Cup, sealed with a 3-0 win (5-2 on aggregate) over Independiente del Valle of Ecuador. A packed crowd in the Maracana stadium went home delirious after witnessing history; this was the first time the club had lifted an international...

Flamengo's new-look defence will determine club's Recopa, Copa Libertadores fates

Copa Libertadores holders Flamengo were held to a 2-2 draw in Quito but are still favourites to claim the Recopa Sudamericana on Wednesday.

It is all square entering the decisive second leg of the Recopa Sudamericana, or South America's Super Cup, the annual challenge between the champions of the Copa Libertadores and the winners of the Copa Sudamericana.

Last week, there was parity on the field between teams with no parity in their purse strings. Brazilian giants Flamengo have a budget this year of $162 million. Meanwhile, Independiente del Valle of Ecuador have a budget of $7 million. At home in Quito for the first leg, Independiente...

Flamengo, Independiente del Valle get Copa Libertadores preview in Recopa matchup

Everton Ribeiro looks on during Flamengo's Brazilian Supercopa final against Athletico PR.
Flamengo will meet Independiente del Valle in the Recopa, a preview of the pair's matchup in the Copa Libertadores.

Across the next two Wednesdays, South America plays out its Recopa -- or Super Cup, pitting the winner of the Copa Libertadores against the champion of the Copa Sudamericana.

The winning side will doubtless perform an enthusiastic lap of honour. They will have got their hands on a trophy. But this is one of those titles that barely qualifies as such. Unless something extraordinary happens, the games will not live long in the memory.

It is, after all, an uneven fight.

The Libertadores is, by...

Independiente del Valle overcome all odds to win Copa Sudamericana

Cristian Dajome and Federico Lertola
The Copa Sudamericana final on Saturday was interrupted for over half an hour by a tropical downpour.

In the end, there was late drama and a historic result for a historic occasion. Tiny Independiente del Valle of Ecuador beat Colon of Argentina 3-1 to win the Copa Sudamericana, South America's equivalent of the Europa League.

In place of the traditional home-and-away, two-legged decider, the element of chance was introduced this year to both the Sudamerica and the Libertadores in the shape of a one-off final on neutral ground.

For a while, the local football authorities must have feared that the...

Independiente tasted Copa Sudamericana glory on Saturday.

Unheralded Ecuadorean side Independiente del Valle overcame a rain-sodden pitch to beat Argentina's Colon 3-1 and win the Copa Sudamericana on Saturday in a final interrupted for over half an hour by a tropical downpour.

The game kicked off a new era that will see South American club competition finals follow the European model and be played over one match in a neutral venue, but it was an inauspicious start in Asuncion, Paraguay.

Dark clouds gathered over the Nueva Olla stadium at kickoff...
