Chile: La U seal title to finish perfect year (video)

Posted in South America Football by peterbein on December 30, 2011

Universidad de Chile crowned a fantastic year by winning the Clausura championship final last night. Following a goalless draw in the first leg played last week, “La U” saw off final opponents Cobreloa with a 3-0 score line with all of the goals coming in the first half. Gustavo Canales, Eduardo Vargas and Matias Rodriguez scored the goals which settled the championship which was La U’s 15th Chilean championship title overall.

Having won the Apertura championship title earlier in the year Universidad de Chile have arguably been the team of the year in South America, even allowing for Santos FC’s Copa Libertadores triumph, as the Chilean champions have won three domestic titles in a row as well as picking up their first international trophy in the form of the 2011 Copa Sudamericana, a tournament in which La U remained unbeaten in twelve matches.
