Copa Sudamericana round-up

Independiente with a 1-0 win against Lanus (3-0 over two matches) as they make the Round of 16. Martin BENITEZ with the goal. Gabriel MILITO’s team will play Chapecoense of Brazil in the next round.

On Tuesday, it was San Lorenzo who barely qualified (literally) as they defeated Banfield 4-1 to advance to the next round with a 4-3 total on aggregate. They’ll play Deportivo La Guaira of Venezuela in the next round. Matias CARUZZO (who had 4 caps for Argentina under the crazy Diego MARADONA days), Nicolas BLANDI (scored twice) and Martin CAUTERUCCIO of Uruguay were the goalscorers.

There’s still one more match to go between Estudiantes and Belgrano on Thursday night. That is currently 1-0 for Estudiantes with tonight’s match being played in Cordoba (Belgrano would be at home). The winner of that tie goes on to play Coritiba of Brazil.
