  Report: Chapecoense could be out of Copa Libertadores after email mix-up © Mariano Martino / LatinContent WO / Getty Chapecoense's first adventure in the Copa Libertadores is the feel-good story in world football. The Verdao, rebuilding after 19 members of its squad were killed in a plane crash, is just one victory away from the Round of 16 after defeating Club Atletico Lanus 2-1 in Argentina.

However, Chapecoense is reportedly at risk of being eliminated from the Copa Libertadores after CONMEBOL sent an email to the wrong person.

According to ESPN's Gabriela Moreira, Luis Otavio, who produced the winning goal in Chapecoense's triumph at Lanus, was ineligible to play on Wednesday. The centre-back was shown a red card in the Verdao's previous game in the Copa Libertadores - a 3-0 defeat away to Nacional - and was apparently given a three-match suspension. But the Brazilian club allegedly believed the player had received a one-game ban that was served in the second leg of the Recopa Sudamericana.

  Brazilian squad Chape makes emotional return to crash scene Chapecoense, the scrappy Brazilian soccer club that was devastated by an airplane crash in the mountains of Colombia last year, made an emotional return to the scene of the disaster Tuesday. Among the three players who survived the tragedy and made the return journey was goalkeeper Jackson Follmann, who lost part of his leg in the accident and had to be helped by rescuers up a still-scarred hillside after being pulled from the wreckage of a chartered plane.

CONMEBOL reportedly emailed Chapecoense about the suspension, but the Verdao never received it, as it was sent to someone other than the person who receives the club's official disciplinary communications, and might have been labelled as spam. South American football's governing body apparently went to the club's dressing room before kick-off in order to advise the team about the suspension, but, after the email couldn't be found, Vagner Mancini decided to play Otavio, who went on to score in the 88th minute.
