Copa Sudamericana: Blooming-River Plate match called off after fan attacks player

Blooming 0 – River Plate 1 (Match Suspended) (Copa Sudamericana, August 11, 2009) Puppo’s scrappy goal just after the hour looked to have given the Argentinean giants the win but with 20 minutes remaining a fan burst on to the pitch with a knife and hit River’s Henry Gimenez, forcing the game to be called off. Gimenez escaped unhurt and the crowd reacted by throwing objects onto the field.

LDU de Quito 1 – Libertad 0 (Copa Sudamericana, August 11, 2009) Neicer Reasco netted the winner seconds before half-time, getting a rebound after Libertad goalkeeper Bernardo Medina saved a Christian Lara shot.
