Is this the first or second leg?

Okay, so this seems to be the exception to the rule, but, why do so many south american fields seem to be in such rough shape? Is it altitude? Weather? I watched the Paulista championship at Corinthians, and even that had more bald spots than a George Costanza look-alike convention.

I noticed the same thing watching a CONMEBOL U-17 match. I think a lot of it has to do with the time of year - it's late fall in S. America, the fields are worn down and the grass is starting to go dormant. Plus, ITTET, I'd imagine a lot of clubs don't want to re-lay the whole pitch, just patch where they have to.

Must be all the aerial herbicide spraying they do down there.
