Chapecoense win first title since crash

Chapecoense win first title since crash

Brazilian soccer club Chapecoense have lifted their first title since the air crash that killed 19 of their players in November.
Chapecoense successfully defended their Santa Catarina state league championship on Sunday, despite a 1-0 defeat at home against Avai.
It is Chapecoense’s sixth title in the Santa Catarina league, which is a dress rehearsal for the Brazilian championship that starts next weekend.

The Brazilian team can win another title on Thursday in Colombia, playing in the Recopa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional.
Chapecoense won the first leg 2-1 at home.
The Recopa is between the champions of the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana.
Chapecoense were awarded the Copa Sudamericana after the crash in Medellin killed 71 people.
