South America: Federico Nieto scores a screamer for Colon at Estudiantes; LDU thrash Flu in Sudamericana final first leg
Estudiantes 0 – Colon 1 (Apertura, November 25, 2009) Federico Nieto, second on the top scorers’ list, took his tally to 11 with a fine volley from the edge of the box that gave keeper Damian Albil no chance.
LDU de Quito 5 – Fluminense 1 (Copa Sudamericana final first-leg, November 25, 2009) Marquinho pounced on a parried shot in the opening moments of the game to give the visitors a precious lead in the altitude of Quito, but they struggled from that point on, with Mendez unleashing two long-range thunderbolts to swing the advantage in LDU’s favour before halftime. He completed his hat-trick with a 60th minute header and then assisted Salas for his side’s fourth, before de la Cruz put the icing on the cake with a 30-metre strike of his own in the dying minutes.
