Will include this in here as they have qualified for the Libertadores:

Alianza Lima are 118 years old today. Originally named Sport Alianza, they were formed by workers of the Alianza Racing Horse Stud. “Los Blanquiazules” are the only surviving founding member of the Peruvian Football League, created in 1912.

Ecuador's Barcelona have requested that this years Libertadores be suspended due to irregularities in the registering of players from certain clubs. Apparently 20 clubs across South America were late registering players. There will be no expulsions, though, just fines.

After last year you would have thought clubs would have got their act together. Then again this is South America. :D

The list includes 5 Chilean teams, 9 Brazilian, 5 Paraguayan and 2 Venezuelan. It should be 6 Chilean and 8 Brazilian but CONMEBOL listed Universidad de Chile as Brazilian. o_O:D

Caracas almost pulled it off, but they go out to a last minute Bernardo Cuesta goal. They qualify into group F - first time since 2010 that three Peruvian teams have reahed the group stages.
