Speaking of Corinthians, they have had quite the year. They won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A last December, two points ahead of Vasco da Gama, but most importantly, for the first time in their history, they managed to behead that pertinacious and zaftig monkey that had made a home of their back and claim the Copa Libertadores de América, beating Boca Juniors 3-1 on aggregate. Their appearance in the final comes courtesy of victory over Egyptian powerhouse Al-Ahly and a solitary goal via the head of Paolo Guerrero after a super-dooper outside of the boot chipped cross from Douglas. They dominated the first-half of that game and really should have led by more, although even when Al-Alhy upped their game in the second half Corinthians were rarely troubled.
