Copa Libertadores wrap: Rodriguez double wins it for Universidad

28 March 2012 05:19

Matias Rodriguez scored a timely brace as Universidad de Chile beat Penarol 2-1 in the Copa Libertadores on Tuesday.

The hosts stormed into an early lead in Santiago when Fabian Carini spilled Junior Fernandes' cross into the box straight at the feet of Rodriguez, and the Argentine duly tucked into the open net with just three minutes on the clock.

But they lost that early advantage seven minutes after the break as a rare mistake from Jhonny Herrera enabled Carlos Valdez's header to creep over the line.

Penarol defended astutely and managed to limit the number of chances for Universidad, but they could not stop Rodriguez from turning in Mena's cutback in injury time to give the hosts their second win of the group stage.

In Uruguay, Nacional kept their hopes of progressing to the knockout stage alive with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Alianza Lima.

Tabare Viudez scored the only goal of the match in the 69th minute, flicking in Vicente Sanchez's square ball to give the hosts a lead they would not relinquish.

The win means Nacional sit just one point behind Group Five's joint-leaders Libertad and Vasco da Gama with two games remaining.

Elsewhere, torrential rain in Venezuela made for a drab affair as Deportivo Tachira and Nacional Asuncion shared the spoils in a 0-0 draw in San Cristobal.
