It was a mixed bag of results for the teams from Andean nations involved in Copa Sudamerican action this week, with a couple of wins, a couple of defeats and one draw.
Peruvian side Universitario have one foot in the last sixteen of the Copa Sudamericana after they won 2-1 away to Anzoategui of Venezuela in the first leg of their second round tie.
The final two matches in the first round of the Copa Sudamericana were completed this week – bizarrely enough in the same week that Brazilian sides played out their second round matches, but that’s South American planning for you! – with La Equidad and Santa Fe of Colombia both defeating Peruvian opposition to secure their places in the round of 32.
The last couple of days have seen three Andean sides in action in the Copa Sudamericana – a loose Europa League equivalent – with tonight’s match between La Equidad of Colombia and Peru’s Juan Aurich concluding matters for the week.
