Passion! Chaos! The ever-present chance of violence! Possibly some football, at some point! Yes, that’s right: this week, the knockout stage of the Copa Libertadores gets underway. There are three Argentina v Brazil clashes, with River Plate v Cruzeiro and Godoy Cruz v Palmeiras both on Tuesday night, and Athletico Paranaense v Boca Juniors on Wednesday, as well as San Lorenzo taking on Paraguayan giants Cerro Porteño.
