Copa Sudamericana: Lanus, Fluminense & Velez Sarsfield all progress

Goias 3 – Cerro Porteno 1 (Agg. 3-3*) (Copa Sudamericana, October 1, 2009) Felipe put Goias ahead in the first half, and Carlos Recalde equalised. Felipe again and Leo Lima struck for the Brazilians, but the decisive goal eluded them.

Lanus 1 – LDU de Quito 1 (Agg. 5-1) (Copa Sudamericana, October 1, 2009) Claudio Bieler scored for Liga giving them a five-goal advantage, and Santiago Salcedo’s goal was far from being enough for the Argentinians.

Fluminense 4 – Alianza Atletico 1 (Agg. 5-3) (Copa Sudamericana, October 1, 2009) The Peruvians tried to stop their rivals with physical tactics and ended the match with eight men as the referee sent off Marcio Valverde, Ruben Mori and Rafael Farfan. Brazilian defender Luiz Alberto also received a red card. Marcio Valverde opened the scoring for Alianza on 15 minutes from the penalty spot, but Dario Conca equalised before half-time and in the second half Alan Borges De Carvalho and Adeilson Pereira (twice) sealed the Flu’s win.

Union Espanola 2 – Velez Sarsfield 2 (Agg. 4-5) (Copa Sudamericana, October 1, 2009) The Chileans took a two-goal lead during the first half through goals by Jorge Ampuero and Gustavo Canales, but after the break Leandro Caruso showed up twice to give Velez the quarter-final spot.
