Soccer roundup: O’Higgins on top after weekend of upsets


O’Higgins 2-0 Unión Española

Triumphing in a crucial encounter with the former leaders, third-place O’Higgins leapfrogged into pole position Friday, leaving all to play for in the final stage of the season.

Unión Española got off to a promising start with several early chances, of which Gustavo Canales’ strike from outside the box, which hit the crossbar, was the closest.

O’Higgins came back soon after, however, with a textbook finish from Carlos Escobar 19 minutes in to put the team from Rancagua ahead.

Matías Abelairas came close to evening the score for Unión Española in the second half, hitting the post from a free kick.

Luis Pedro Figueroa soon put an end to the home side’s hope of evening the score though, as he cooly slid the ball past the Española keeper in a nice bit of counter-attack play from O’Higgins. Sebastián Jaime kept things interesting, hitting the framework for “Los Hispanos” for the third time, but it was too little too late for the table leaders.

The defeat adds to Union Española’s recent poor form, finally knocking them off top stop after dominating the first part of the season. In contrast, the team from Rancagua now have a slender one-point lead with only four games left to play.

Universidad Católica 1-1 Deportes Iquique

“Los Cruzados” failed to capitalize on last week’s win, only managing a draw against struggling Iquique. Despite dominating most of the game, Católica quality in front of goal and were too- often no match for a strong performance from Iquique keeper Rodrigo Naranjo.

Enzo Andía headed Católica into the lead 38 minutes in, but the home team’s elation was short-lived thanks to Rodrigo Díaz’s equalizing from a free kick seven minutes later.

The second half saw plenty of chances, but good saves at both ends kept the two teams at deadlock.

Saturday’s draw means Católica missed the chance to go top, but remain very much in the race equalling second place Unión Española for points with an equal number of games played.

Everton 3-0 Santiago Wanderers

Wanderers went into this derby on the back of three straight wins, but its ambition of sneaking into contention for the top spots was checked by a strong showing from its old rivals.

Everton took the lead 18 minutes into the first half thanks to Emilio Romero’s calm finish following some strong counter-attack play from the home side.

Ten minutes later Alex Von-Schwedler furthered Everton’s lead, heading home a free kick from Ángel Rojas.

The second half was no better for the visitors as Everton continued to dominate.

Running down the left flank José Luis Muñoz beat his man before knocking the ball into the far corner, increasing the lead to three with only 12 minutes to play.

Wanderer’s woes were not quite complete, however, only two minutes after conceding Ezequial Luna’s flailing arm earnt him a second yellow card and a sending off, sealing the visitors fate.

Audax Italiano 1-0 Palestino

There were a few half chances in the first half but neither side looked too threatening until Audax Italiano broke the deadlock 66 minutes in.

Despite not actually making any contact with the ball, Sebastián Sáez laid claim to the match´s only goal after his bald head came within a hair’s length of Marco Medel’s goalbound cross. The Italiano forward is in impressive form this season, scoring more than 65 percent of the team’s goals as well as leading the league’s overall top goalscorer standings.

Spurned into action by conceding, Palestino fought back and had several good chances but were unable to even the deficit. The Italiano win means it sneaks ahead of Palestino on goal difference as both teams have 16 points.

San Marcos de Arica 1-0 Rangers

Underdogs San Marcos put in a strong performance against Rangers winning its first game since February 3, giving a much needed boost to its hopes of avoiding relegation.

The only goal came 70 minutes in when San Marcos winger Nestor Contreras’ header was manhandled over the line by the unfortunate keeper. It may have only been a few centimeters but it was enough to keep the Arica side’s head above water for a little longer.

San Marcos now have 10 points, putting them one win away from Antofagasta and Huachipato, 14th and 15th place respectively, while Rangers remain cosy in its mid-table obscurity.

Cobreloa 4-1 Cobresal

Bottom of the table landmark Cobresal went into this game as the clear underdogs and it did not disappoint, despite getting off to a promising start.

Jean Paul Pineda put the home side ahead beating the keeper to a cross and heading Cobresal ahead 28 minutes. Even a penalty couldn’t dent the underdogs lead as Cobresal keeper Sebastian Cuerdo saved a penalty from Argentine forward Marcos Sebastián Pol.

With the second half, though, came the inevitable Cobresal comedown. Apparently, still in shock at being in the lead, the home team conceded a spree of goals.

Gastón Lezcano was the first to lay in to the beleaguered bottom tablers, turning a defender before beating the keeper in the 50th minute. Pablo González was the next to heap on the misery with a second goal 15 minutes later. Three minutes later, Sebastián Pol made it 3-1 beating the keeper at close quarters.

Then, in the final minute of normal time, René Lima made it four, beating the keeper from a free kick.

Despite its abysmal point total, Cobresal are at least leading the pack when it comes to one statistic, goals conceded. At the other end of the table, Cobreloa’s win leaves it within three points of O’Higgins and the top-spot.

Ñublense 0-2 Unión La Calera

Maximiliano Bajter got the visitors off to a good start heading a cross past the keeper nine minutes in. Ñublense fought back and had some good chances, but a great shot by João Ortiz in the 29th minute doubled La Calera’s lead and took the wind out of the home team.

After the break Ñublense came out looking dangerous and created some good chances, threatening Alejandro Becerra’s goal on several occasions.

It was not to be though, first Mauricio Gómez then Emanuel Croce were no match for Becerra’s keeping, failing to convert successive penalties.

Sunday’s victory puts La Calera in 6th place, only four points of the heady heights of O’Higgins and the top spot.

Deportes Antofagasta 4-2 Universidad de Chile

Following upsets for Unión Española and Universidad Católica, Sunday’s match with 14th place Antofagasta looked like a surefire win for “La U,” but unfortunately for the visitors, the northerners hadn’t read the script.

Isaac Díaz opened the scoresheet, capitalizing on several shots and some scrappy defending by the home side to fire in a shot from the edge of the area eight minutes in.

Antofagasta hit back, though, as Javier Elizondo got past his marker heading the ball into the far corner in the 28th minute to score his first of four.

Fernando Hurtado kept things on an even plane for Antofagasta, saving a 38th minute penalty from Ramón Fernández.

Soon after the break, Elizondo headed the home team into the lead. Antofagasta continued its strong attacking play, earning a corner in the 56th minute. Herrera supplied Elizondo at the far post and he volleyed in his third goal of the match.

The excitement continued at the other end as Universidad de Chile’s Juan Ignacio Duma scored a spectacular goal with a cross/shot from way out on the right flank saving some face for the visitors.

It wasn’t to be, however, in the final minutes Elizondo made a great performance even better by getting behind the keeper on a long ball and beating the last defender to his fourth goal of the match in the 88th minute.

Colo Colo 2-2 Huachipato

Traditional powerhouses but current champions of mediocrity Colo Colo got off to a promising start Sunday, only to cement its reputation for underperforming by failing to maintain the lead against bottom feeders Huachipato.

The home side began well with a confident finish from Carlos Muñoz 15 minutes in. Gonzalo Fierro kept up momentum with a further strike for “Los Albos” just before the break with a well-taken header.

Things started to go wrong in the last half hour as some terrible Colo Colo defending allowed Braian Rodríguez to tap in a rebound unmarked.

One shocking disregard for the concept of marking later and Huachipato’s Felipe Reynero was able to even the scoreline with a header from inside the five yard box.

The upshot is a much-needed point for Huachipato and an unsurprised sigh from Colo Colo fans who watch on as their once-great club continues languishing in the middle of the table.

Paulinho: Corinthians are more confident to beat Boca

Corinthians´ midfielder Paulinho believes his team are more confident to beat Boca following the win in last year´s final against the Argentine team.

The current world champions face Boca on Wednesday at the famous La Bombonera stadium for the first leg of the Libertadores Round of 16.

Paulinho talked to reporters in Buenos Aires, he said: Of course we are very confident, due to the title we won last year, how we played here against Boca. We know it´s a different situation, but the preparation is the same and we know it will be more difficult."

"We focused a lot last year, we knew it would be hard to play here [in Buenos Aires], everyone that plays against Boca knows it is hard. We have to play the same way, nark Boca tightly and not waste the chances we have as an away goal is important."

He denied that Corinthians are the favorites, he said: "We are not the favorites, but our form is better than Boca´s but the respect remains the same."

"We have to pay even more attention given Boca´s poor form, if we are too slow, they can surprise us. They will be more motivated to beat us because of their bad form."

Palmeiras fans to decide name of new stadium

The naming rights of Palmeiras´ new stadium have been sold to German insurance company Allianz for 115 million Euros for a period of 20 years.

Palmeiras´ new stadium is the second in Brazil whose naming rights have been sold recently, as the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador has been named Arena Itaipava Fonte Nova after the Brazilian beer brand.

The new name will be chosen by Palmeiras fans via a facebook vote, the three options are: Allianz 360º, Allianz Parque and Allianz Center.

The voting process will end on May 20, Palmeiras were not allowed to make any suggestions.

Allianz already have the naming rights of stadiums in Australia, England, France and Germany.

The stadium is expected to be inaugurated in the first quarter of 2014, and will be the second new stadium in São Paulo, as Corinthians´ stadium will be ready by the end of the year and will host some 2014 World Cup games.

Palmeiras plan to use the new stadium to host shows and other non-football events, which currently usually take place at São Paulo´s Morumbi stadium.

The feel good factor in Belo Horizonte may not extend to the Brazil national team

Rio de Janeiro? As stale as yesterday’s päo de queijo. São Paulo? As cutting edge as a mid-nineties Now That’s What I Call Music CD. These days, the footballing place to be in Brazil is Belo Horizonte.

Atlético Mineiro’s surge through the Libertadores group phase is well documented. Propelled by the Gandalfesque trickery of Ronaldinho as playmaker, strapping zagueiro Réver, and “Neymar who?” youngster Bernard, Atlético are currently the most attractive side in the country, playing to a packed, raucous throng at the Independência stadium.

Galo’s hated rivals Cruzeiro are looking none too shabby either. For most of the last two decades Cruzeiro were one of the most consistently successful sides in the country, before financial mismanagement and the temporary loss of the giant Mineirão stadium to World Cup rebuilding work brought about a decline. Now though, things are looking up. The club is back on a (relatively) even financial keel, and new signings such as Dagoberto and titanic centre back Dedé, the club’s record signing and a major coup, have renewed confidence. Unassuming Marcelo Oliveira is a world away from the traditional blowhard Brazilian coach (take a bow, Srs. Luxemburgo, Braga, and Ramalho), but as his success at Coritiba showed, he is a thoughtful, well-prepared manager. Back playing at the Mineirão, the club have been attracting average crowds of around 25,000 – impressive for the thin gruel of the local Campeonato Mineiro.

The importance of the reopened Mineirão cannot be overlooked. Although Atlético have elected to remain at the smaller Independência for now, with hard-headed president Alexandre Khalil claiming the financial terms offered by the bigger ground would be crippling, the giant stadium out at Pampulha is a symbol for the historical growth of football in the region, and holds a rare emotional sway over the heart of every Mineiro. Never was this clearer than last Sunday, when 50,000 turned up for a rare Atlético game at the stadium – a meaningless dead rubber tie against lowly Villa Nova.

The city itself is also undergoing a renaissance. The Mineirão was the second of the World Cup stadiums to open, and is being accompanied by a raft of infrastructure projects, including an underground metro system. Increased cultural variety, including the remarkable country park and open air art installation, Inhotim, has boosted civic pride. Once a slightly shabby, unenthralling city, Belo Horizonte is now a prosperous and dynamic urban centre, and some distance ahead of the rest of the World Cup pack in terms of preparation.

The perfect spot then, for Felipão’s woe begotten Seleção to recover some lost confidence in Wednesday’s friendly against Chile. It was to be the first time that Brazil would play in one of the new World Cup stadiums, and expectations were high, even if the game would only feature locally based players. Playing to the gallery, Felipão picked four local players in his squad – Dedé, Réver and Ronaldinho all started, with Atlético right back Marcos Rocha on the bench.

The stadium itself was also under the spotlight. After a disastrous reopening in February, when 60,000 fans sweated in queues of biblical proportions to park their cars, then queued again to gain entry, before being left without drinking water (the bars were closed and the taps ran dry) and confronted with unlit bathrooms, things have slowly improved – though doubts remain about the ability of construction company Minas Arena to manage a major sporting arena. On Wednesday, things went more smoothly, despite chaotic traffic and long queues to enter the stadium.

Unfortunately the same could not be said for events on the pitch. While a lack of cohesion was to be expected, Brazil once again stuttered mightily in a 2-2 draw, often looking pedestrian compared to a lively Chile, and Felipão appears to have almost as many questions as answers as his side stumbles towards 2014. Neymar merely flickered, and neither Dedé nor Réver looked particularly secure, but perhaps the greatest cause for concern was Ronaldinho. While his domestic form makes a compelling case for inclusion in the Confederations Cup squad to be announced on May 14th, the player continues to struggle when outside his Atlético comfort zone. Certainly, on current international form, his 2014 place looks in doubt.

Though to what extent Mineiro football fans even care is doubtful. Renowned for preferring club to country, Scolari’s team were harshly treated once the initial enthusiasm had worn off. Chilean passing moves were greeted with cries of “olé, olé”, the manager was called a donkey and Neymar a flake, and a chorus of boos rained down at the final whistle. There may be a feel good factor in Minas Gerais these days, but Felipão and the Seleção continue to look distinctly peaky.

White Elephant Hunting in Brazil

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil — The city of Manaus, deep in the tropical rainforest of the Brazilian state of Amazonas, is a long way from the bright lights of Ipanema and Avenida Paulista.

And the tiny Roberto Simonsen stadium, the temporary home of local clubs such as Nacional, Rio Negro and Fast Clube, seems a world away from the glitz and gleam of newly opened World Cup venues in Belo Horizonte and Salvador. At the stadium earlier this month, on a typically sweaty Manaus evening, Nacional defeated Águia de Marabá in the Copa do Brasil in front of a mere 1,137 souls, and the shouts of players and coaches rose higher into the night sky than those of the fans.

Supporting a local team in the north of Brazil is to be a kind of soccer freedom fighter — a hardy band, small in number, huddled on the echoing, empty terraces. The influence of early radio and later TV broadcasts, combined with the patchy quality of local games, means the vast majority of fans follow one of the big teams from Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo, usually Flamengo, Vasco or Corinthians. Crowds for matches in the Campeonato Amazonense are counted in the hundreds rather than thousands.

An odd place, then, to build the Arena Amazônia, a 44,000 capacity, $305 million World Cup stadium. How will the likes of Nacional and Fast Clube fill the stadium once the city’s few weeks in the Mundial sun are over?

Manaus is not alone. Similar white elephant sightings have been recorded in Brasília, the country’s capital, where the 70,000-seat, $495 million Mané Garrincha stadium nears completion while local clubs such as Gama and Brasiliense struggle to attract more than a few hundred fans to their games, and in Cuiabá, which will soon boast the shiny new 47,000 Arena Pantanal, but has only Serie C or D teams to play there.

To make matters worse, in regions where investment in public transportation, health and education is often lacking, the stadiums are mostly being constructed through public/private partnerships, with the lion’s share of the money coming from public coffers. As the former Brazilian national team star Romário put it, “four of the 12 World Cup stadiums, in Manaus, Cuiabá, Brasília and Natal [in the northeastern state of Rio Grande do Norte], will find it difficult to survive after the Copa. Maybe they’ll have concerts there a few days a month, but otherwise, they’re a joke.”

Such criticism, however, overlooks a number of important factors. The first is history. The north and northeast are traditionally Brazil’s two poorest areas, having been starved of both private and government investment for decades. These regions trail the wealthier south and southeast in every social and economic indicator, and large swathes of the population still live below the poverty line.

But in recent years things have begun to change. Government investment programs have boosted economic development in the northern half of Brazil, and as a result, economic growth in states such as Pernambuco has begun to outpace that in the south (the port and industrial complex at Suape, home to refineries and a shipbuilding plant, is a symbol of such robust expansion). While World Cup stadiums are not an obvious form of social development, the infrastructure projects that surround them, such as an extension to the metro system in Fortaleza, can be.

“Many of these projects were planned long before the World Cup was announced. But the Copa has accelerated things by providing a date by which things have to be ready,” Luis Fernandes, executive secretary of the Ministry of Sport, said recently. In Brazil, where public works often progress at a listless pace, or are shelved indefinitely, the importance of such deadlines should not be underestimated.

Furthermore, if Brazil’s traditional economic and cultural tilt toward the south and southeast is to be reversed, then it would surely be absurd if the World Cup was yet another event based in Rio, São Paulo and the south, with the rest of the country watching via the giant Globo TV network. Brazil’s minister of sport, Aldo Rebelo, summed up his feelings on the subject earlier this month. “Manaus represents the Amazon, 60 percent of the territory of Brazil. Is it conceivable to have a World Cup that excludes 60 percent of the country?“

Nor are these small towns in the sticks. More than two million people live in the Manaus metropolitan area, and Cuiabá has a larger population than Atlanta. If Brazil is to become the modern, developed country it is striving toward, it is hard to argue that population centers of this size do not merit modern, large-scale sporting arenas.

The challenge, then, is how to make the stadiums sustainable after the World Cup. An important element is the multi-use nature of the new venues. Ney Campello, Secretary of Secopa, the government’s World Cup organizing body, in Bahia, has said that the new Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador requires about 33 well-attended soccer games and four international level shows to cover its running costs each year.

There are enough games in the Campeonato Amazonense, or the Campeonato Mato-Grossense (the state where Cuiabá is located) to meet this goal, and locals will flock to the events, from popular music festivals to monster truck racing to religious gatherings, that the new stadiums will host. But Bahia, now the home of Freddy Adu, is one of the best supported clubs in Brazil. The teams in Manaus and Cuiabá cannot say the same. Finding a way to attract fans to watch local clubs, perhaps through reduced ticket prices and better marketing, will be essential.

Another problem for the clubs will be the cost of running the new stadiums — energy and staffing expenses are likely to be prohibitive for games with small crowds. “It will only make sense to use the stadium for clássicos,” said Fabrício Lima, of the Manaus Sports and Leisure Department.

Nevertheless, amid talk of delays and spiraling costs, the 2014 World Cup will at least be an event for all Brazil. In a country where the north-south cultural and economic divide is so deeply engrained, that at least is something to celebrate.

“Back when I was a young man, I never dreamed I’d see the World Cup here,” said Brasilino Almeida, an elderly Salvador construction worker who helped build both the original Fonte Nova stadium in 1950, and, 60 years later, its modern replacement. It is a sentiment that will be echoed in Cuiabá, Manaus and beyond.

Former FIFA president João Havelange resigns in light of bribery scandal

Former FIFA president João Havelange has resigned from his post as honary president following allegations of bribery.

A report from FIFA´s ethics committee has named the Brazilian as having received bribes along with two former executive committee members Ricardo Teixeira and Nicolas Leoz as receiving bribes. All three have since resigned from FIFA.

The report states: "Mr Havelange has long held solely an honorary position, which does not qualify him as an ´official´ under the code of ethics. Further, Mr Havelange resigned his position as honorary president effective 18.04.2013."

Current FIFA president Sepp Blatter has welcomed the report and issued a statement stating that he has been cleared of any misconduct.

He said: "I also note with satisfaction that this report confirms that ´President Blatter´s conduct could not be classified in any way as misconduct with regard to any ethics rules´.

"I have no doubt that FIFA, thanks to the governance reform process that I proposed, now has the mechanisms and means to ensure that such an issue - which has caused untold damage to the reputation of our institution - does not happen again."

2013 Libertadores: Tijuana hosts Palmeiras

Tijuana will test their strength at home on Tuesday when they welcome Palmeiras in the first leg of the knockout stages at the 2013 Copa Libertadores.

The team from Mexico has reached this stage of the continental tournament thanks in large part for the way they play at home. In their stadium they have beaten Bolivia´s San Jose, Brazil´s Corinthians and Millonarios from Colombia, a run that allowed them to qualify to the round of 16 as the number two team in Group 5.

However Tijuana´s defender Juan Carlos Núñez is cautious of Palmeiras. "They are a difficult opponent, typical Brazilian. It´s going to be a very difficult match but we hope to get a result here to close out the tie in Brazil", said Núñez.

Palmeiras, meanwhile, also aspires to fight for the continental title since last weekend they were eliminated by Santos in the quarter-finals of the Paulista tournament.

The match will start at 6:30pm local time (01H30 GMT Wednesday) in the Caliente stadium in the city of Tijuana. The stadium has capacity for 23,000 spectators.

The return leg will be played May 14 at the Pacaembú stadium in Sao Paulo.

2013 Libertadores: Tigre wants to prolong their "cup dream" against Olimpia

Tigre will look to take a historic step when they welcome on Tuesday night Olimpia of Paraguay in their first leg match of the round of 16 at the 2013 Copa Libertadores.

To reach this unprecedented stage Tigre finished second in Group 3, including a convincing away win on the final day of qualifying 5-3 against Libertad, another representative from Paraguay. Olimpia won Group 7 by thumping Argentina´s Newell´s 4-1 on the closing day.

Tigre postponed their game against Vélez over the weekend in the local tournament so they could thoroughly prepare for Olimpia.

"They are a rival that is used to playing in the Copa and we are a rookie team. We know they have a great history being a three-time champion of the Libertadores. But there is an expectation and hope that we can give them a good match," said Nestor Gorosito, the coach of Tigre.

Olympia landed on Saturday in Buenos Aires and trained at the complex that belongs to former player and former coach of River Plate, Matías Almeyda. The latest news out of Olimpia´s camp is that young defenseman Aquilino Giménez is part of the team.

The match will be played at the José Dellagiovanna stadium in Victoria starting at 8:15pm local time (23h15 GMT). The match will be officiated by Ecuadorian Omar Ponce with the linesmen being Carlos Herrera and Douglas Bustamante, also from Ecuador. The second-leg will be played on May 6 at the Defensores del Chaco stadium in Asuncion.
