Copa Sudamericana: Olimpia, Cobreloa earn narrow aggregate wins

Olimpia 2 – Danubio 1 (Agg. 2-1) (Copa Sudamericana, August 7, 2012) It was the visitors who drew first blood when Argentinian forward Leonardo Carboni headed home in the 23rd minute. However, Olimpia turned the tie on its head with two goals in five minutes just before half-time through Eduardo Aranda and Juan-Manuel Salgueiro.

Cobreloa 2 – Tacuary 2 (Agg 3-2) (Copa Sudamericana, August 7, 2012) Cobreloa looked to be cruising into the second stage of the competition when they took a two-goal lead through Cristian Canio’s right-footed strike and Marcos Pol’s header. Substitute Ramon Cardozo reduced the deficit in the 62nd minute, though, when Cobreloa keeper Sebastian Contreras failed to hold onto a weak shot, and then a Cristian Suarez own goal evened things up on the night.
