match in “Sudamericana Cup”. The champion São Paulo FC once again showed its
strength in the competition. The Tricolor beat the Universidad Católica 4-3 on
Wednesday in Chile and advanced to the quarterfinals of the
competition. Aloisio scored twice while Ademilson and Welliton scored the other two goals of the classification.
was exciting, disputed side by side and very balanced. São Paulo started
losing (Sosa and Cordeiro scored for University), but Aloisio equalized, turning on the defender and then the goalkeeper to score his two goals. The striker’goalkeeper, (over 100 career goals) Rogério Ceni, saved the team in the defense with a
brilliant performance and at least three miraculous interventions.
The match remained
hot in the second half. When Ademilson scored his goal, making it 3-2 for SPFC, things seemed calmer for the Brazilian team. The problem is that the referee
marked a nonexistent penalty for Universidad, collected by Mirosevic. But fate smiled for the Brazilians.
Toward the end of the game, the genial Paulo
Henrique Ganso found Welliton free in the box and he shot nicely to assure the classification. In the next
phase, São Paulo will face Freddy Adu's Bahia, who beat Colombia's Atletico Nacional at Fonte Nova.
The Tricolor will be without Paulo Henrique Ganso, expelled
in a mess at the end of the match. The next
match of SPFC in the Brasileirão will be Sunday against International in Caxias do Sul for the 31st round. The club adds 40
points and ranks 10th place in the national competition.
