Boatafogo are back in Copa Libertadores and have a giant tifo to prove it

It's been 18 years since Botafogo qualified for Copa Libertadores, but they are back this year and just in case you forgot, their supporters had a nice reminder for you -- a giant tifo with thousands of fans kind of reminder.

"The giant is back."

"Giant" may be a bit of hyperbole considering Botafogo's relatively empty trophy case, but they're certainly back, much to Deportivo Quito's dismay. After losing the first leg of their two-legged playoff 1-0, Botafogo crushed Deportivo Quito, 4-0, on Wednesday night to qualify for the group stage.

Botafogo are back.
