I was just about to start a thread. Beat me to it.

Carabobo vs Universitario is the first game. As expected, I'm going for my Peruvian brothers. La U have built a decent team and it would be a disaster if they can't win.

Carabobo drew 1-1 with Universitario yesterday. Dull game, both teams were quite poor offensively. La U were more dominant in the middle but had nothing to show for it.

He's not. He's an Inter fan. But his brother, Muriel, is Fluminense's goalkeeeper.

DIM is the first qualification round team to reach the group stages. They lost 1-0 last night to Atletico Tucuman but beat them 4-2 on penalties.

They will face Boca, Libertad and Caracas.

The Strongest are only really strong when they play at home at their high altitude stadium in La Paz. No doubt that Atletico Tucuman would have felt the affects of the thin air, in the Bolivian mountains.

Barcelona should breeze that group. Even if they rest their big stars I can't see them not qualifying.

Did you see Fidel Martinez' goal last night?

Should look familiar... xD

That was a good run, a clever shimmy and a cool finish. But the defending by that defender was terrible, he was so easily beaten. 

Fidel Martinez is a very talented winger, it's a shame he never tried his luck in one of the European leagues.

It's an extremely similar goal to Messi vs Bayern - hence why I said "look familiar?"

And yeah I really liked Fidel when he was in the Liga MX. Things didn't quite pan out for him but he's dominated the start of the Libertadores. Good on him.

Yes, the Mexican league is probably an easier league for South Americans to settle in, I suppose.

Eduardo Vargas, plays in the Mexican league after having essentially failed in Europe. Vargas was absolutely amazing for Chile, scoring goals galore. But at the same time, he really struggled in Germany, England, Spain and Italy. But it seems like he has scored a decent amount of goals since he joined Tigres in the Mexican league.

Vargas has always been one of those players who has looked world class for the national team, yet has struggled at club level, well at least in the big leagues of Europe.

Palestino take the lead away to Guarani. 1-1 on aggregate. Penalties if it stays like this at full time.

I saw Caracas vs Boca.

Boca's 2nd string team played well but you can see why it was their second string. Really struggled to put away their chances. Caracas really only had one clear shot at goal and it was the free kick that went in, though that's not to say they didn't have a go. Some quite dangerous attacks.

A few notes

- IDV are strong on the road but I didn't expect Barcelona to drop the ball that much

- Adebayor debuted for Olimpia as a sub

- LDU Quito did well and probably would have won regardless yesterday but the win has less prestige due to River playing a second string team.

I went to see Alianza Lima vs Nacional last night. I got a few videos of the atmosphere but no pictures when the ground was full. I took the pictures 2 hours before kick off!

And here are the Uruguayan away fans. Decent following
