After the horrific tragedy of two years ago, Chapecoense's first-divison fate will come down to the final game of the season.

It is precisely two years since the Chapecoense plane crash, when almost the entire team and coaching staff of the little Brazilian club lost their lives.

In such circumstances, it seems crass in the extreme to state that Chapecoense are fighting for their first-division survival this weekend. Such metaphors lose all their meaning when measured against true tragedy.

Nevertheless, there is a connection. Because all of the emotion engendered by the disaster needs to be channelled somehow. And the...

CONMEBOL have fined Nacional and ordered the Uruguayan club to play their next three games behind closed doors after some supporters mocked the plane crash that killed most of Brazilian squad Chapecoense two years ago.

The disciplinary court of the South American governing body announced the sanction and the $80,000 fine late on Monday.
