CONMEBOL: Quito secure berth in Sudamericana final (+video)
Ecuadorians LDU Quito have managed to secure their place in another Copa Sudamericana final following their 1-0 second leg victory over Argentinians Vélez Sársfield on Tuesday evening.
The 2009 Sudamericana winners were already leading 2-0 from the first leg played in the Ecuadorian capital last week and it was first leg hero Hernan Barcos who made sure of Vélez’s departure from the competition by scoring the only goal of last night’s contest in the 48th minute.
Having won the Copa Libertadores and Sudamericana in recent years LDU Quito are starting to make their name as a footballing powerhouse in South America and they will hope to win yet another piece of silverware in the two-legged final on December 7th and 14th. They will meet the winners of tonight’s other semi-final between Universidad de Chile and Vasco da Gama, which remains in deadlock following last week’s 1-1 draw in Rio.
