San Lorenzo celebrated reaching the Copa Libertadores Semi Final last night with a 1-1 draw in Belo Horizonte against Cruzeiro to give them a 2-1 aggregate victory and keep their dream of capturing South America’s biggest prize for the first time. It is also worth noting that with the elimination of Cruziero it will be the first Libertadores Final since 2004 without a Brazilian side. Ignacio Piatti’s early goal set San Lorenzo on their way and although a Bruno Rodrigo equaliser with 20 minutes to play made for a nervy ending, El Ciclón held on. Earlier, Arsenal de Sarandí crashed out as they failed to overturn their first leg defeat in Paraguay against Nacional. A goalless draw in Buenos Aires meant Arsenal’s historic run in the Libertadores came to an end.

Arsenal de Sarandí  0 – 0  Nacional (Agg 0 – 1)

Cruziero  1 – 1  San Lorenzo  (Agg 1 – 2)

Videos will be up shortly – sorry!
