Just like in Asia, intercontinental football has resumed in South America. And it’s all going to be taking place in the CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores.
Since the 15th of September, action has resumed on the field of play, as sides look to finish off the group stages of the competition. From travel challenges to rising COVID-19 cases and the critical issue of the match fitness levels of some teams, the show goes on in South America.
After a six-month hiatus, Round 3 is now done and dusted with. All is now set for the second half of the Copa Libertadores group stages.

One feature common to all the games played since the restart is the goals scored. In the third round of games, only one game finished without a goal while eight featured at least three goals. As players gain match fitness and games become more competitive, you can expect this trend to continue.
What of the teams? What specific teams are there to look out for in the final half of these group stages?
Independiente is one of the only two sides that are yet to concede a goal in their three Copa Libertadores games this season. They are also one of the two sides that have scored goals in the double digits this season.

They’re not among the favorites to win the tournament. But they have started well, with three clean sheets in their three wins. Can’t be overlooked, just like Flamengo, one of the favorites to win this season’s Copa Libertadores trophy.

Palmeiras, Internacional, Nacional, and Santos are some of the few other clubs yet to taste defeat in this tournament this season. They are also the sides that will have early qualification as their objectives as they head into the second half of the campaign.
Alianza Lima, Barcelona SC (not the one in Spain), Tigre, and Independiente Medellin have not recorded any points so far. If you call them The Whipping Boys of the tournament you won’t be far from the truth.
Goals conceded has been their main weakness. They have conceded an average of two goals per game. They must now do better if they are to have any chances of qualifying for the knockout round.
