A pair of late goals saw The Strongest get past Morelia in the Copa Libertadores, while Huracan also advanced.

Pablo Escobar's late brace helped The Strongest to a 2-0 win over Morelia, securing the Bolivians' place in the Copa Libertadores group stages on Wednesday (AEDT).

With the first leg having finished 1-1 in Mexico, Escobar's four-minute double in the dying stages saw The Strongest progress.

Nestor Craviotto's men take their place in Group Four, alongside Emelec, Internacional and Universidad de Chile.

The away goal scored by The Strongest looked to be enough to send it through.

The clash in a very wet La Paz was locked at 0-0 entering the final 10 minutes, with the visitor needing a goal.

Instead, Escobar put the host ahead in the 86th minute - curling a left-footed effort into the bottom corner from just outside the area after Alejandro Chumacero's lay off.

Just three minutes later and Escobar sealed the tie by driving into the area and finding the bottom corner once more.

In Argentina, host Huracan and Alianza Lima played out a 0-0 draw - seeing the former claim a 4-0 aggregate win.

Huracan will be in Group Three, taking on Cruzeiro, Mineros de Guayana and Club Universitario.
