Colo Colo could have won easily 4 or 5x1 . . .Wasted penalty kick and easy tap ins...They settled for a measly 1x1 tie :(

Colo Colo REALLY has to do the impossible tonite in Argentina and that is BEAT River...Next week they will have to BEAT Fortaleza in Santiago too, Fortaleza has now 7 points just like the Chieftains.
We blew it in Lima where we got one point and it should had been a HUGE win, WOW the amount of wasted Goals and wasted 3 points in that match . Unreal

All four Teams end their run next week. 2 will advance

And unfortunately I believe we will lose in Santiago after squandering a few Goals during regulation time to lose in penalties and out of the Libertadores. With all the YOUNG TALENT we have from our OWN System we cannot be in 2 different championships at the same time, because Us and every Chilean Team in our league lacks the manpower to support 2 Leagues equally running alongside.

We sell the young talent and the PROFITS vanish overnite, thus the dilema lies in there.

My thoughts were correct, Colo Colo in their Stadium VOID of Fans. lost the match and are no longer in the Libertadores.

The Futbol Entity of Chile has to FINALLY put an End to the Few rowdie Fans that populate the stadiums in Chile, and get them BANNED for Life. They ruin the party for more than 98% of the TRUE FANS and people that have paid dearly to have those seats occupied by true Fans and not Idiots.

Playing inside an Empty stadium is like watchinn a blue ray disk in black and white. It makes no sense at all.

River and Boca out of Copa Libertadores in round of 16

SAO PAULO (AP) — Argentinian soccer giants River Plate and Boca Juniors are out of this season's Copa Libertadores despite being favorites in their round-of-16 matches. Their exits hand the favored status to Brazilian teams, which have dominated the tournament in recent years and which again look strong to lift the title.

Only Brazilian and Argentinian teams will play the quarterfinals of the tournament, with two Brazilian and one Argentinian side already into the semifinals.

River was knocked out on Wednesday at the Monumental de Nunez Stadium after a goalless draw with local rival Velez Sarsfield, the winners of last week's first leg 1-0. New Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez played his last match for the hosts, who protested a late goal annulled after video review.

Velez will take on another Argentinian team, Talleres, which won its tie against countrymen Colón 3-1 on aggregate. Earlier on Wednesday, Talleres beat its rival away 2-0, with goals by Federico Girotti in the 47th minute and Angelo Martino in added time.

Boca was eliminated on Tuesday by Brazil's Corinthians at La Bombonera Stadium after two goalless encounters and a 6-5 defeat on penalties. Striker Dario Benedetto wasted two penalty shots for the hosts; one hit the post in the first half and the second, which could have been the shootout winner, was off goal and high.

Corinthians played both matches of the tie without most of its starting players, including former Chelsea winger Willian and former Shahktar Donetsk's Maycon. Boca's elimination against a team that had been crushed by injuries cost the job of coach Sebastián Battaglia.

Corinthians will play local rivals Flamengo in the quarterfinals.

Flamengo beat Colombia's Tolima 7-1 at the Maracanã Stadium on Wednesday after winning away 1-0 last week. Striker Pedro netted four goals.

Flamengo could have Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal for its quarterfinal. The 35-year-old Vidal, who has just left Inter Milan, was at the Maracanã Stadium to watch Flamengo's win and said a contract agreement with the Rio de Janeiro club was close.

Defending champions Palmeiras cruised past Paraguay's Cerro Porteño 5-0 without much effort after a 3-0 win away. Palmeiras will face defending Brazilian champion Atlético Mineiro, in a repeat of last season's semifinal. Mineiro beat Ecuador's Emelec 1-0 on Tuesday.

The only remaining match of the round of 16 will be played on Thursday, when Argentina's Estudiantes de La Plata face Brazilian underdogs Fortaleza after their 1-1 draw last week.

The winner of the match will face Brazil's Athletico, which knocked Paraguay's Libertad out in the last minute on Tuesday after a 1-1 draw in Asuncion. The Brazilians, whose coach is World Cup winner Luiz Felipe Scolari, had won the first leg at home 2-1.
