Copa Libertadores semi-finals, 1st leg

Graphic News

October 23-24, 2018 -- The Copa Libertadores, South America’s premier club competition, reaches the semi-final stage with first leg matches taking place in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores feature two heavyweight contests between perennial rivals Argentina and Brazil, as River Plate take on Gremio, and Boca Juniors clash with Palmeiras.

Reigning champions Gremio are bidding to win a fourth title following their victory over Argentina’s Lanus in the 2017 final, while six-time winners River Plate are targeting one more title to equal the all-time record held by Independiente.

Boca Juniors and Palmeiras met in the group stages, drawing in Sao Paulo, before the Brazilians inflicted Boca’s only defeat of the competition with a 3-0 victory in Buenos Aires.

Argentina (24) and Brazil (18) have won 42 of 58 Copa Libertadores titles collectively.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
