Argentine sides in the Copa Libertadores, 9th Feb 2010

Colón have failed to make it through to the group stage of the 2010 Copa Libertadores, losing out to Chile’s Universidad Católica penalties after a 5-5 aggregate draw. Meanwhile some of the groups are already underway, and Lanús played their first match in the competition proper on Tuesday evening. They didn’t appear to have learned from last year’s Copa campaign, and lost 2-0 thanks to two defensive howlers at home to Paraguay’s Libertad, who may well go far in this year’s competition. You can watch all the goals from both games right here.

Universidad Católica (CHI) 3 – 2 Colón (U. Católica win 5-3 on penalties after a 5-5 aggregate draw)

Group 3: Lanús 0 – 2 Libertad (PAR)

  1. The Colón game was thrilling. I was pleased with the result as well… a) I like Mirosevic, I was sorry he left Racing and b) we’ve already lost to Colón’s first strength side… I didn’t want Colón progessing in this, and then playing reserves against the likes of Central, Chaca and Tucumán and giving them easy points.

    Colón are strong enough to win the title, if they had eleven men in this game all through they might have won here, even though the Chileans dominated. Mohamed is great with the set pieces (Bichi’s goal was very good) and counter attacks, and it’s a bonus for Racing that they will now be competitive in the league competition.

    As for Lanús, terrible, but Libertad must be the strongest side in the group, so maybe Lanús can think about getting second place.

    1. Colon – Catolica: match of the month. It did seem the ref & linesman during the shootout had their eyes closed, 2 shots should of been recalled (one for each side).

      Lanus – Libertad: Lanus is a perennial copa disappointment. Nothing surpising here.
