Tigre, Iquique reach Copa Lib group stage

30 January 2013-PA Sport

Argentinian side Tigre clinched reached the Copa Libertadores group stage for the first time by destroying Anzoategui 3-0 in Venezuela for a 5-1 aggregate win.

Tigre controlled the game from the moment man of the match Ruben Botta opened the scoring in the seventh minute, and doubled the lead after the break through Paraguayan forward Federico Santander.

Home midfielder Ebelio Hernandez saw red five minutes from time and a minute later striker Ezequiel Maggiolo sealed the clash with a header.

The Copa Sudamericana runner-up will go into Group Two, alongside Peru's Sporting Cristal, Brazil's Palmeiras and Libertad of Paraguay.

Chile's Iquique also reached its first Libertadores group stage by defeating Mexican side Leon 4-2 on penalties after the tie ended 2-2 on aggregate.

After a tight first half, Colombian striker Yovanny Arrechea volleyed the visiting Mexicans ahead a minute into the second period but Argentinian Rodrigo Diaz levelled from the spot before the hour mark.

That made it 1-1 on the night and 2-2 on aggregate, but it was the home side more accurate in the shoot-out.

Iquique will take its place in Group Four, with Ecuadorian side Emelec, Uruguayan giant Penarol and Argentina's reigning champion Velez Sarsfield.
