Libertadores 2010: Banfield 0 – 2 Nacional

Uruguayan champions Nacional visited their Argentine counterparts on Tuesday night in the second clash between the two clubs in a week. Last week’s Group 6 match in the Estadio Centenario had ended 2-2, so Banfield went into the game with some hope of all but securing their qualification in front of their own fans. As it was, Nacional had the hosts in their pocket thanks to two goals in quick succession shortly before the break. After the referee had failed to give Banfield a penalty for a handball, Nacional struck through Sebastian Coates and Fernando Godoy, to leapfrog Banfield at the top of the Group 6 table. You can watch the goals right here.

This result means Nacional now have 8 points and Banfield 7, having each played four matches. Mexico’s Monarcas Morelia (bottom with 1 point from 3 matches) host Ecuador’s Deportivo Cuenca (third, with 3 from 3) on Wednesday night in the week’s remaining Group 6 match.

At the time of writing, Vélez Sársfield are losing 1-0 away to Chile’s Colo-Colo. The goal video from that game will be up on Wednesday night.

  1. Nice free kick from Matute Morales there. He’s younger than I thought, he seems to have been around for ever, I thought he was at least forty!

    In a totally unrelated matter, I’m thinking of going onto a random porn blog and leaving loads of incomprehensible messages with links to websites about Argentinian football.

    1. Matthew, PLEASE DO.

      I’m going into the spam filter options in WP right now and disabling all form of linking in comments I’m afraid, people. You can still comment with a link, but it’ll take until I check the site (at the end of each day) before showing up. Sorry about this but I’m getting increasingly pissed off with the number of these things that are getting through the filter so it’s time to get medieval on they links’ asses!
