CONMEBOL: LDU Quito have one foot in Sudamericana final (+video)

Posted in South America Football by peterbein on November 25, 2011

LDU Quito have given themselves a great chance of reaching this year’s final by defeating Argentinian giants Vélez Sársfield in the semi final, first leg.

Following a goalless first half, LDU Quito had Hernan Barcos to thank for scoring the goals which have allowed the Ecuadorians to put one foot in this year’s final. LDU have made a habit out of winning major titles in South America in recent years having won the 2008 Copa Libertadores, 2009 Copa Sudamericana as well as winning back-to-back Recopa (South American Super Cup) titles in 2009-10. Velez, though, will have home advantage in the second leg, which takes place this coming Tuesday evening, and will hope to win their first major continental silverware since winning the 1997 Recopa.
