Copa Libertadores 2009: the first preview

Tuesday night was momentous. Not only did HEGS turn two years old (the first birthday wallpaper is still downloadable here), but it also saw the group stages begin in the 50th edition of the Copa Libertadores de América. Argentina’s first action in the competition (excepting Estudiantes’ qualifiers) will come on Wednesday night, when Lanús play Chivas and San Lorenzo host San Luis, whilst River begin another Copa of spectacular failure on Thursday at home to Nacional of Paraguay.

I’ve previewed this year’s Copa for the excellent Bill’s Sports Maps, who furnished us with the beautiful HEGS map, and you can read that article – a very short summary of each of the teams – right here on his excellent site.
