Copa Libertadores wrap: Universidad rally to clinch away goal

17 May 2012 05:53

Universidad de Chile came from behind to salvage a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Copa Libertadores quarter-final with Libertad.

Paraguayan outfit Libertad took the lead through Victor Caceres in just the seventh minute of the match, before Gustavo Larenzetti equalised for the visitors.

It means Universidad take an away goal through to the second leg next Thursday.

Libertad have reached the semi-finals of the competition twice and looked on track to repeat the dose in front of their home fans when Luciano Civelli crossed the ball into the path of midfielder Caceres who slotted home past Jhonny Herrera to grab an early advantage.

The hosts should have doubled their lead minutes later but Miguel Samudio fired wide when through on goal.

And Samudio was to blame once more 10 minutes before half-time when he missed a similar opportunity.

Libertad were made to rue their missed chances shortly after the break when Universidad found an equaliser.

Lorenzetti's shot from outside the box took a deflection and flew past a helpless Rodrigo Munoz in the Libertad goal.

Universidad were reduced to 10 men late on when Emilio Hernandez was sent off for a dangerous tackle.

In Wednesday's other match, Brazilian teams Vasco da Gama and Corinthians played a 0-0 draw in their first-leg matchup.

In driving rain at the Sao Januario stadium, neither side could find a way past the defence, with the best chance of the first half coming from a direct free kick which was struck firmly by Alex. As the ball dipped towards goal, Prass could not hold on it and the ball was parried back into the box and cleared.

With just minutes remaining, Vasco's Diego Souza was incorrectly ruled offside after heading past Cassio Ramos.
