Godoy Cruz qualified for next year’s Copa Libertadores on Friday night with a 3-1 away win over Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, and in so doing they’ll become the first team from the province of Mendoza ever to play in the Copa. Needing a draw to secure qualification, Godoy went ahead through Nico Sánchez early on, and although Antonio Rojano made it 1-1 before the break, a brilliant long-range effort from David Ramírez gave the visitors the advantage midway through the second half before Abel Masuero gave Godoy all three points with an own goal to make it 3-1 five minutes later. In the later match, Arsenal de Sarandí beat San Lorenzo 2-1. All the goals are right here.
Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata 1 – 3 Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba
Arsenal Fútbol Club 2 – 1 San Lorenzo de Almagro
