No side had previously won a home match in Copa Libertadores group seven and so with two rounds completed, all four teams sat on three points – that was until Tuesday evening when Argentine Primera champions Lanús completely outclassed Venezuelan side Zulia.

Only four minutes were on the clock when El Granate sliced through the visitors’ defence allowing Lautaro Acosta to open the scoring and it set the tone for almost the entire 90 minutes.

Although the score remained that way until half time, a minute after the restart José Sand rifled in the second before Germán Denis struck his first for the club from the penalty spot.

Alejandro Silva danced between the static defenders to slot in a fourth and Nicolás Pasquini added a fifth to complete the rout.

Lanús travel to Venezuela next week with the group still wide open but back on course for qualification.
