CONMEBOL Matchday 7

Big Loser:   Chile and Colombia.  If there is a tiebreaker it would hav to be based on the result.  So La Roja woud have to earn that honor.  These were the only two that lost at home.   But it was not their loss on the scoreboard, it was their offensive ineptitude that raised questions- again.  The good thing for one of these teams is that they are facing each

Big Winner:  In pramatic fashion, both Uruguay and Brazil handled their business and are offibcialyback in the race.   Uruguay was cold and did not allow a tepid Colombia offense to gain confidence.  Brazil instead pounded Chile and outmuscled the Andeans in their own backyard. Even though it seemed like Chile could have a chance after after Claudio Bravo stopped a Ronaldinho penalty kick, that was not going to happen.  It was Luis Fabiano who used his uncanny combination of power and skill to plow through the Chilean defense and earn his brace, thus earning MVP honors for the weekend.
