(EFE) – Lanús achieved his classification to the round of 16 of the South American Cup with the formula of the away goal, since he lost 4-3 against San Pablo, from the experienced Daniel Alves, who thus said goodbye to the international tournament .
The Argentine team won 3-2 in the first leg last week, in Buenos Aires.
The goals of the Brazilian team were converted by Alves, their captain, Pablo, Nicolás Thaller in the own goal and Gonzalo Sara.
Pedro De la Vega, Brian Aguirre and Nicolás Orsini, the latter in recovery time, scored for the Buenos Aires team, who until the 90th minute lost 4-2 and were eliminated.
With qualification at the Morumbí stadium, Lanús will meet Bolivian Bolívar in the round of 16, who on Tuesday dispatched Chilean Audax with a 3-0 win.
From the beginning, De la Vega gave danger signals on the local goal defended by Thiago Volpi and after four minutes he starred in a clear goal play that was prevented by Luan.
When the host was looking to establish himself on the field and had an opportunity with Brenner to open the scoring, De la Vega’s goal came in the 16th minute, who took advantage of a lack of concentration at the start of Tchê Tchê and beat Thiago Volpi from outside the area.
With the score against, San Pablo went on to impose conditions and in the 26th minute equalized with a header by Alves after a cross from the left by Reinaldo.
But those led by Luis Zubeldia did not settle for the draw, which in any case gave them the classification, and went to seek victory with clear plays from De la Vega, again, and from defender Guillermo Burdisso, who demanded Volpi.
Before the end of the first half, Igor Gomes had the opportunity to put the Brazilians ahead, but Aguirre, who appeared this Wednesday in the creation, took advantage of a crossing by Lionel Di Plácido at 43 minutes to convert the second from Lanús. And then Reinaldo wasted the tie before the break.
In the second half, the coach of the local side, Fernando Diniz, moved his chips and gambled with the entry of the attacker Pablo instead of the defender Diego.
Tchê Tchê, then a shot on the crossbar by Gabriel Sara, Brenner and a deflected shot by Pablo, were responsible for bringing danger to the visiting goalkeeper Lautaro Morales.
Fernando Diniz’s change took effect in the 61st minute, when a cross by Alves was capitalized by Pablo to make it 2-2.
With the obligation to win, Dani Alves and Gabriel Sara continued incisive and San Pablo cornered Lanús.
In a nerve-breaking final, Thaller scored on his own goal after a Gabriel Sara cross and with that marker the classification would be defined on penalties.
A minute from the end, in a play by the two protagonists of San Pablo, the homeowners got 4-2 and the momentary classification with a goal from Gabriel Sara against a pass from Alves.
With the classification that he already seemed to have in his pocket, coach Diniz gave up the attack and relieved Luciano and Brenner for the defenders Leo and Robert Arboleda, the Ecuadorian, but a lapidary goal in the replacement time by Orsini sentenced the elimination of the premises and the celebrated passage to the second round of Lanús.
