Arsenal suffer defeat to Sport Recife in Copa Sudamericana first leg (VIDEO)


After narrowly avoiding relegation it seems odd to see Arsenal representing Argentina in the Copa Sudamericana. Given their standing it was no real surprise to see Humberto Grondona’s side slump to a 2-0 defeat in Recife and the Primera strugglers now face a huge task to progress to the last 16.

Striker André’s simple second half brace has given Sport a commanding lead ahead of the second leg in Sarandí in three weeks.

A last 16 tie against either Ponte Preta or Sol de América awaits one of the sides.
