Lanús beat Independiente 3-1 this Thursday and qualified for the semifinals of the Copa Sudamericana where Vélez Sarsfield awaits him.
After the goalless draw in the first leg, Garnet won with goals from Tomás Belmonte, José Sand and Nicolás Orsini, while Colombian Andrés Roa discounted for Rojo at the end of the match.
Lanús prevailed with authority and is still on his way to add his third international title after the 1996 Mercosur Cup and the 2013 edition of the South American Cup.
In addition to the crossing between Lanús and Vélez, the other semifinal will also have Argentine participation with Defense and Justice against the Chileans from Coquimbo Unido.
Lanús made the big difference in the first twenty minutes of the match, since at minute 15 he made the first difference with a goal from Tomás Belmonte who took a furious shot from the edge of the area to overcome the resistance of Uruguayan goalkeeper Sebastián Sosa.
Two minutes later, Garnet increased the difference with a center from Pedro De la Vega who found José Sand’s left shot to increase the advantage for the visit.
Independiente, after this difference on the scoreboard, he began to despair because he could not find a game to bring danger to the goal defended by Lautaro Morales.
El Rojo had three options to discount through shots from Silvio Romero, Federico Martínez and Lucas González but he missed the aim.
And Lanús in the 44th minute, after a rained ball that made his central Alan Franco and Alexander Barboza doubt, found Nicolás Orsini who took a hole shot to extend the difference in the score to three.
In addition, Independiente rotated his players but Lautaro Morales had reactions to avoid the fall of his fence, while Lanús had two clear options to increase the advantage.
In the 84th minute, the admitted Andrés Roa achieved the discount with a quality left-handed shot to decorate a defeat that marked the continuity of Lanús and the elimination of Independiente.
