Paraguay's Libertad and Arsenal de Sarandi of Argentina cruise into the group stage of the 2012 Copa Libertadores after winning their respective preliminary play-offs.
Libertad of Paraguay and Arsenal de Sarandi of Argentina progressed to the group stage of the 2012 Copa Libertadores, after defeating El Nacional of Ecuador and Sport Huancayo of Peru, respectively, on Tuesday.

Having lost 1-0 to El Nacional in Quito last week, Jorge Burruchaga's Libertad completely turned around the tie by thrashing The Ecuadorians 4-1 in a extremely one-sided affair in Asuncion, to qualify for the second round of the competition for the tenth successive year and their 13th time in total.

Meanwhile, Gustavo Alfaro's Arsenal advanced to the group stage of the competition for only the second time in their history despite a 1-1 draw with hosts Sport Huancayo. The Argentines struggled to adapt themselves to the 3,200-metre altitude, but nevertheless made their 3-0 win from the first leg count.

Internacional of Porto Alegre draw first blood with a narrow victory over Once Caldas in the qualification stage of the Copa Libertadores.
As is generally the case in the Copa Libertadores, all of Wednesday's first round qualification matches were won by the hosts. However, the victories came at a cost, as they were by the slightest of margins, leaving all three ties completely wide open ahead of the return legs next week.

In the battle between two former Libertadores champions, Brazil's Internacional did just enough to dispatch of Once Caldas of Colombia with a well-deserved 1-0 victory in Porto Alegre.

Flamengo, Brazil's most popular club, understandably couldn't cope with the effects of the 4,000 metre altitude in their 2-1 defeat to Real Potosi in Bolivia.

While, Chilean outfit Union Espanola enjoyed a hard-worked 1-0 win over Mexican champions Tigres in Santa Laura, Santiago.

Ronaldinho will aim to inspire Flamengo to victory when they travel to Bolivia to take on Real Potosi in search of passage into the group stage of the Copa Libertadores.
Flamengo, Brazil's most popular club with an estimated fan base of over 36 million, will be hoping to move closer towards gaining entry into the group stage of the 2012 Copa Libertadores when they clash with Real Potosi of Bolivia on Wednesday.

The Brazilians face a tricky task, as while on paper they appear to be much stronger than the locals, what could make things all that more difficult is playing at almost 4,000 metre above sea level, a climate which Brazilian teams have struggled to deal with in the past.

In Wednesday's other two Copa Libertadores first round fixtures, Union Espanola of Chile take on Tigres UANL of Mexico and Internacional of Brazil face Once Caldas of Colombia in a tie that could go either way.

Former winners Inter and Once Caldas have found wide success in the competition in recent years, but unfortunately one of the two sides will have to bow out at the first hurdle.

Pursuing the American dream: Cerro Porteño, Santos, Velez and Peñarol struggle to reach Libertadores final.
Libertadores semi-finals features two exciting matches this week. Brazilian favorite Santos hosts Cerro Porteño this Wednesday, while Peñarol hosts Velez Sarsfield in Uruguay this Thursday.

The four survivors play a highly offensive football, and most of them have a clear offensive referent to harmonize the attack. 19-years old Neymar has been the main engine of Muricy Ramalho's Santos, Roberto Nanni has successfully lead Cerro Porteño, and Uruguayans Santiago Silva and Juan Manuel Oliveira have done the same for Velez and Peñarol respectively.

Santos, already crowned champion of the Torneo Paulista, wants to lift its third Libertadores title, for the first time in more than 45 years. Velez Sarsfield wants to recover the American glory after 17 years, while at the same time leading the Argentinean Clausura.

Peñarol, a true Libertadores veteran, wants to deliver a fatal blow to Ricardo Gareca's Velez and reach the final for the first time in 24 years.

Cerro Porteño, Peñarol, Velez Sarsfield and Santos look forward to confirm their superiority in the second-leg of the Libertadores quarter-finals.
Velez Sarsfield and Peñarol are one step away from reaching the semi-finals. Santos, the only Brazilian survivor, rescued an important victory in Colombia and now hosts Once Caldas at the Urbano Caldeira.

Cerro Porteño hosts Jaguares on Wednesday's night. Jonathan Fabbro found the opener on the 27th minute of the second half, but the Aztecs levelled the game with Pedroza's last-minute goal.

Once Caldas eliminated Cruzeiro from the Libertadores on its last visit to Brazil. The Colombians were defeated at home, but they managed to secure their place in the quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory in Belo Horizonte. Can they stop Santos from reaching Libertadores' semi-finals?
