Club America Edge Millonarios 3-2 In Thriller
Club America picked up a huge 3-2 victory over Millonarios in the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana semifinals in Bogota, Colombia.
Millonarios, who thrashed Brazilian champions Sao Paulo 3-0 on aggregate in the quarterfinals, dominated early on in the match, with the backing of almost 50,000 home fans.
But America, who edged Brazil's Vasco da Gama 2-1 on aggregate in the quarterfinals, took the lead in the 25th minute with a headed goal from midfielder German Villa.
In the 37th minute Paraguayan international Salvador Cabanas doubled their lead, and it seemed like the Mexicans were cruising.
But after the break the Colombians finally came to life, and Gerardo Bedoya pulled a goal back for them with a precise freekick in the 61st minute.
Then in the 69th minute Millonarios drew level with a strike from Jonathan Estrada.
But America would have the last laugh, when Cabanas scored his second goal of the night in the 84th minute to give them a priceless 3-2 lead going into the second leg in Mexico.
On Thursday night River Plate will do battle with Arsenal de Sarandi in the other semifinal.
