Brazil: Alecsandro gives Vasco crucial first leg lead (+video)

Posted in South America Football by peterbein on June 2, 2011

The first leg of the Copa Brasil final took place last night with Vasco da Gama winning by a narrow 1-0 victory over Coritiba. Alecsandro scored just five minutes into the second half to give Vasco the advantage in front of a sell-out crowd at their home Estádio São Januário. Neither club has ever won the Copa Brasil before in their history and with Coritiba playing host in next Wednesday’s second leg one thing that is guaranteed is that there will be a new name on the trophy whoever comes out on top.
