Something I've been wondering recently. It's well-known that teams such as LDU and The Strongest have a big advantage playing at home because of the altitude issues, but in reverse, are these teams negatively affected when travelling to somewhere at sea level? Are there any problems with a higher quality of air, or is the advantage of altitude a one-way street?

From what I know and past experiences, teams that play at a high altitude constantly and then go to sea level city for a match, won't see any negative effects. Actually they could see themselves benefited because their resistance is much better and will get tired later than they usually do when they play at home.

I remember when I moved from Mexico to Argentina. For the first couple of weeks I thought I flew over the football field, then my body regularized got rid of the unnecessary red globules (or something along those lines) and played at the same rhythm my mates did.

Nothing even to do with the movement of the ball, perhaps? I noticed last night watching The Strongest v Internacional that the Bolivians would shoot from distance a LOT, and seemed to have some really powerful, accurate shots. Maybe that's just something this team in particular are good at, I dunno.

Atletico Nacional v Godoy Cruz setting itself up to be a great game again. Well, great in the sense that neither team seems to be able to defend to save their lives. 4-4 in the fixture in Argentina, and 20 minutes in and we're already 1-1 here after some terrible defending by Godoy, then a free kick that the keeper really should have saved to equalise.

2-2 right now with both teams still looking like they've forgotten what defending is, and the referee seems pretty incapable of doing anything right; couldn't even deal with a drop ball situation the right way. Very entertaining, though.

I thought you were referring to the physical aspect of the game. But yeah, the ball's movement seems to be faster and a bit more powerful when playing at a high altitude. It's not a big disadvantage when they play at sea level stadiums though.

Lost the game last night, got home a bit late and without any energy to turn on the tv. Ended up 2-2, looked like a good one.

Oh, I was talking about from a physical standpoint initially, but was just wondering about the ball movement in addition to that.

La U playing Penarol tonight, really tired but I think I'll stay up for it.


1-0 after 3 mins. Cool

Flamengo out, unlucky crybaby Ronaldinho. Laughing

Best thing about it is Olimpia hold the head-to-head over them, and they were 3-0 up against Olimpia with about 20 minutes left.

The ending in Group 2. Wow!

Flamengo winning 3-0, if Olimpia-Emelec finishes a draw, they're through. 1-1 87 minutes in, and Emelec score to make it 2-1 and Flamengo are going out. Then Olimpia equalise 1 minute later, Flamengo are going through again. Emelec kick off, run up and get a corner, and take the lead again. Finished 3-2. Cool

Flamengo went from being through, to out, to through, to out, in the space of 3 minutes. Laughing

Yeah man, the TV over here was half the Olimpia - Emelec game and the other half was about Flamengo fans in Brazil.

The change of expressions of their faces in a minute was hilarious.

Pabon is so damned good. I can't believe he's not in Europe yet.

Call me crazy, I'd say they are a top 5 team in the world.
