Guillermo Barros Schelotto bade farewell to Lanús last night after overseeing El Granate’s safe passage into the 2016 Copa Sudamericana with victory over Gimnasia. Leading one-nil fro the first leg, Lanús were gifted a perfect start in El Bosque when Nicolás Navarro was adjudged to have brought down Miguel Almirón for a penalty. Lautaro Acosta tucked away the resulting spotkick to double the aggregate advantage but a second penalty of the match, this time in favour of the home side made matters more interesting. Nicolás Mazzola reduced the deficit and when Lanús had Almirón sent off early in the second half, El Lobo sensed a comeback. Unable to find the crucial second, Fabián Rinaudo levelled the numbers on the pitch and in with minutes remaining, Gonzalo Di Renzo scored on the break to seal victory for Lanús.
Gimnasia 1 – 2 Lanús (AGG 1-3)
