Heading to the next phase
Libertad comes back home with a point from Lima, in a tied game 1 - 1 against Sporting Cristal. "We are walking in a certain path to the next phase", said Ruben that's a step closer to the 8th-finals. Libertad won a crucial point at a crowded National Stadium of Lima. The team started ahead with a score by Velázquez, but Ávila, who scored two times at Asunción, tied up the marker, and that was it for the match. "We took a huge step towards the next phase that makes us very happy. We are still first, undefeated, with a clear advantage in points, and achieving a positive outcome as a visitor against an important team such as Cristal" With this tie, Libertad remains at the top of the group 2, undefeated with 8 points.
