That was fun. I miss South American football being on uk tv

When Sky launched in 1989 I think, Screensport channel(RIP) used to show their live games all the time. Those were t'days. We can still get them now of course by modern means and most enjoyable viewing tonight.

I seem to recall channel 5 carrying Argentinian football at one point. BT had Brazilian football but stopped showing it some time in 2017. I can see Eleven Sports maybe nabbing a few of the rights.

Yeah you'd think maybe after tonight some broadcaster would pick it up. Not that i'll be paying for it right enough.

That must have been an amazing feeling for Martinez at the 3rd goal. 

 

Right in front of the Boca fans as well.

What a game

Quality aggressive flowing end to end football

Ref letting tons of things go and players happy with it

Top level European football could learn a thing or two from that

It was mostly the Brazilian Rio de Janeiro and Paulista leagues iirc. It was quite surreal at times, most of the stadia were decaying shitholes and the football was atrocious, brilliant and violent as f**k all at the same time.

I don't understand why nobody picks it up.  Wouldn't imagine the rights are particularly expensive and the KO times have very little competition with European matches, especially Brazil which runs through the summer months when there's barely any football on TV. You'd think it would be able to pull in as many viewers as MLS.

Don't FreeSport show the Brazilian Serie A? I'm sure I've watched a few games during the summer months. I assume Premier also show it since they're the same company.

Aye Freesports have had Libertadores games on all season. You're probabky right about Brazilian league games, there's been some cup games too

River Plate contrived to lose on penalties to host entrant Al Ain of UAE in Club World Cup SF today.

Where's that del Bosque gif?

That'll make it 7 years minimum since the last South American winner, one South American winner in the last 12, and 3 of the last 6 without a South American finalist. It's also the first West Asian finalist.
