Chapecoense players celebrate and point to the sky after scoring a goal in a Copa Libertadores win on Tuesday.

A little over three months have passed since the Chapecoense air disaster, when the plane carrying the team to the first leg of last year's Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional in Colombia crashed on its approach to Medellin airport.

The club's next long trip north had a happy ending. On Tuesday, the little club from Brazil played their first-ever game in the Copa Libertadores, South America's equivalent of the Champions League. They had to make an immense journey from the south of...
