Winning 2-0 for most of the match thanks to goals from Leandro González and Enzo Pérez, and thus having successfully overturned the first-leg deficit they took back from Porto Alegre last week, Estudiantes de La Plata have gone out of the Copa Libertadores after conceding a late goal to Internacional. Giuliano got it in a smoky penalty box (in celebration of the anticipated win, Estudiantes’ fans had thrown flares onto the pitch) from one of Inter’s only clearcut chances of the night. Afterwards there were heated exchanges with Leandro Desábato at their centre which might see Inter sanctioned – their reserve goalkeeper appeared to hit the defender from behind at one point before running off. You can watch the goals and the scenes after the final whistle right here.
