Estudiantes opened their defence of the Copa Libertadores with a 5-1 thrashing of surprise Peruvian qualifiers Juan Aurich on Thursday night. The match opened Group 3 of the Copa, and is the first time in their history that Estudiantes have scored five goals in the Copa Libertadores. Mauro Boselli hit a hat trick with Germán Ré and Leandro González getting the others as the holders ran riot. You can watch all six goals from the game right here.
