San Lorenzo finally put their Copa Libertadores misery behind them

“Néstor Ortigoza took a long run, so long that you feared a player of his girth might not actually make it to the ball. He stuttered twice on his way into the box, waited for Ignacio Don to commit himself and then slipped the penalty low into the right-hand side of the goal. And with that, Club Atlético Sin Libertadores de América, one of the oldest jokes in Argentinian football, had ceased to be. Ramón Coronel’s handball had proved decisive.” Guardian – Jonathan Wilson
