Godoy Cruz well beaten by Atlético Mineiro but progress in Copa Libertadores as group runners-up (VIDEO)


Godoy Cruz travelled to Belo Horizonte on Tuesday evening safe in the knowledge that both they and their hosts Atlético Mineiro were already guaranteed a place in the Copa Libertadores last 16. Top spot in Group Six was all that was up for grabs and it was the Brazilians that took it with a convincing 4-1 victory.

Former River Plate and Banfield forward Juan Cazeres put the home side two-up inside half an hour with a smart finish over Rodrigo Rey and a stunning free kick.

Elias cut through to make it three in first half stoppage time and minutes after the restart, Fred finished off a fine passing move to well and truly kill the game.

Juan Garro did manage a consolatory close range header but the result and the winner of the group was already confirmed.
