The road to glory begins for South America’s biggest club competition this week, the Copa Libertadores.

Brazilian side Corinthians claimed the trophy for the first time in their history thanks to a double from Emerson in their triumph over six-time winners Boca Juniors in July.

Thirty-eight teams harbour dreams of emulating the Brazilians and for 12 of them their immediate target is progress from Stage One.

Brazilian giants Gremio and Sao Paulo begin their campaigns against LDU Quito and Bolivar respectively, while there’s a first ever appearance for Mexican side Leon.

The ties are two-legged with the winners joining the big boys for Stage Two which kicks off in mid February.
