Copa Libertadores Wrap: Lanus, Cruzeiro strike late

17 April 2014 07:12

Lanus and Cruzeiro left it late to grab a win and draw respectively in the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday.

Guillermo Barros Schelotto's Lanus side claimed a 2-1 victory at home to Santos Laguna in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie.

Carlos Quintero put the visiting Mexicans ahead just before the hour-mark, only for Argentina's Lanus to respond.

Facundo Monteseirin levelled and Matias Martinez was the hero with a dramatic winner in the dying seconds.

Quintero fired Pedro Caixinha's Santos Laguna into a 58th-minute lead, controlling a throw-in before smashing a finish into the roof of the net from a tight angle.

Lanus responded eight minutes later through Monteseirin, who volleyed home a Diego Gonzalez pass from inside the area.

There was to be late drama and, much to the delight of the home fans, it benefitted Lanus.

A set-piece whipped in from the right went uncleared and Martinez headed in the loose ball to give his side a 95th-minute winner.

Cruzeiro also left it late, but their 94th-minute goal from Miguel Samudio was an equaliser to give them a 1-1 draw at home to Cerro Porteno.

The Paraguayans took a 32nd-minute lead as Angel Romero tapped in from close range, and they looked headed for victory.

With just 20 seconds remaining of additional time, Samudio struck after a scramble in the area, with his effort going through a sea of bodies.

In Mexico, Leon came from behind to draw 2-2 at home to Bolivia's Bolivar.

Luis Montes and Juanmi Callejon traded first-half goals before the visitors went ahead through Juan Carlos Arce's 71st-minute goal.

When Juan Gonzalez saw red for Leon, the hosts looked certain to go into the second leg with a one-goal deficit.

But Mauro Boselli netted with four minutes remaining to see Leon to an unlikely draw.
