Copa Libertadores: Banfield go out

Andrés D'Alessandro returns the thumbs-up from the crowd after helping engineer Internacional's comeback

Estudiantes are the last Argentine club left standing at the quarter-final stage for the second Copa Libertadores campaign running, after Banfield threw away their 3-1 first leg victory over Internacional to lose 2-0 in Porto Alegre to an Andrés D’Alessandro-inspired Inter and exit the competition on Thursday night. Internacional will now be Estudiantes’ opponents in the quarter-finals. The efforts of trying to follow the UK elections back home via an internet connection that – especially for the occasion – slowed to almost Martín Palermo-like levels of torpidity meant I didn’t get this goal video online last night, but here it is now.

Copa Libertadores 2010, round of 16 second leg: Internacional (BRA) 2 – 0 Banfield (agg. 3-3, Internacional win on away goals)

You can follow the Clausura and the Argentine sides in the 2010 Copa Libertadores via HEGS on Twitter (including updates during and between matches and similar stories that might not go up on the site until later). I’m slowly gaining followers, but if you’ve not signed up yet you can do so here.
