The emperor’s new pose

(updated goal link 6 May) A paltry 25,500 turned up at the Morumbi to see São Paulo scrape a 1×0 win over Paraguay’s Sportivo Luqueno on Wednesday.

São Paulo dominated the game but couldn’t force the break through until Adriano headed home three minutes into stoppage time.

The on-loan Inter Milan player who is as known as the emperor, then proved he can pose as well as he can score by ripping his shirt off and going all Schwarzenegger.

Elsewhere, Fluminense guaranteed their place in the next phase of the tournament with a 2×0 win over Libertad of Paraguay. This will be the Rio side’s first time in the knockout stage of the Libertadores.

Earlier in the week, Santos thrashed Bolivia’s San Jose 7×0 in the Vila Belmiro.
