Libertad two time champion in Paraguay

Libertad win Paraguayan championship in shoot-out

ASUNCION, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Libertad have won the Paraguayan championship for the second year running after beating Olimpia on penalties in a play-off match.

Libertad beat their opponents 6-5 in a shoot-out after the teams had drawn 0-0 in a match to decide the Clausura, the second stage of the championship, on Thursday night.

As Libertad had already won the first stage of the championship, they took the title automatically, depriving the competition of its end-of-season final.

Five players from each team were booked in a typically tough match at the Defenders of the Chaco stadium.

Olimpia, who won last year's South American Libertadores Cup, also had midfielder Gaston Cordoba ordered from the substitutes bench for fighting in the players' tunnel at halftime.

Olimpia and their arch-rivals Cerro Porteno traditionally dominate the Paraguayan championship.

The best Paraguayan in the last two years without a doubt, but just can't seem to find their form at the continental level
