29 March 2012 15:12

Olimpia recorded an upset 3-2 win over Flamengo in the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday, while Universidad Catolica edged Union Espanola.

Paraguayan Clausura champions Olimpia left Flamengo on the brink of an exit from Group 2 with the brilliant win in Asuncion.

Goals from Sergio Orteman, Pablo Zeballos and Eduardo Aranda helped the hosts to the surprise win, lifting them above Flamengo and into second in the group.

Orteman volleyed Olimpia into a seventh-minute lead, but visiting Flamengo levelled just minutes after the break.

A pinpoint Ronaldinho pass found Vagner Love, who netted to make it 1-1 after 49 minutes.

Zeballos restored Olimpia's advantage, before Aranda put them two goals ahead with a 20-yard drive on 71 minutes.

Argentine Dario Botinelli pulled one back for Flamengo with a cracking long-range strike, but the hosts held on for an important win.

Elsewhere, Universidad Catolica recorded their first win in Group 3 with a 2-1 victory at home to fellow Chilean side Union Espanola.

Roberto Ovelar had given the hosts an early lead in Santiago, only for Gonzalo Villagra to level on 86 minutes.

The hosts, who finished the encounter with 10 men after Matias Campos was sent off, netted a late winner when Daud Gazale struck to help them to within a point of second-placed Bolivar.

In Group 7, Defensor Sporting moved into second after Nicolas Olivera's goal saw them to a 1-0 win at home to Guadalajara.

Guadalajara's chances of victory had been dealt a blow five minutes before half-time when Julio Nava was sent off.
