All to play for in the Libertadores
The all-Brazilian tie in the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores was left in the balance after São Paulo scraped a narrow 1×0 win over Fluminense on Wednesday.
The only goal of the game at the estádio Morumbi came on the 19th minute when Flu keeper, Fernando Henrique, failed to hold on to Dagoberto’s shot and the ball fell perfectly for Adriano to steer home into an empty net. See the goal here.
This was the big forward’s sixteenth of the season and Adriano’s strikes have now accounted for around 40% of all São Paulo’s goals this year. Unfortunately, for the Morumbi outfit, Adriano’s contract is up within the next two month’s and his departure will cause a massive rethink for Muricy Ramalho. The match was watched by almost 62,000, which was easily São Paulo’s best gate of the season.
The return leg in Rio de Janeiro will be played next week.
