In Brazil, Porto Alegre International, with Charles Aránguiz, sentenced the key against Bolívar, by Ronnie Fernándezand became the first classified for the semifinals of the Copa Libertadores.

The Ecuadorian Enner Valencia led the 3-0 overallsince he scored once in the first leg and registered with the 2-0 in Brazil with a brace (11′, 60′).

A striking situation occurred at the minute 41, as the game had to be interrupted by tear gas inside the pitchwhich irritated both footballers and fans, with several of them withdrawing from the galleries.

Already in the game Aránguiz was very active in the center of the “red” squad, with constant support in recovering the ball and starting plays to advance. During the second stage, he also climbed meters to show himself as a download in the vicinity of the area and he was substituted at 65′.

Bolívar managed little and his approximations were not well used. Ronnie, he was very marked and could not have too dangerous chances, except for a weak header that was saved without problems.

Time was running out for the team from La Paz and Fernández had the option of discounting and turning on the celestial illusion, but he missed a penalty kick that added an imperfect execution with the good reaction of the Uruguayan Sergio Rochet, who will be present against La Roja at the start of the Qualifiers.
