Emelec scored the first three points of the second round of the Copa Libertadores after defeating Fluminense 2-1 yesterday, in Brazil, in the first of two games that will define who goes to quarters finals.
At the start of the match, played at the Capwell stadium, the electrics exerted a clear dominance and attacked with vertigo through the sides with Marcos Mondaini, on the left, and Enner Valencia, on the right. After 3 minutes, the goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri detained a counterattack by Marcos Mondaini, who then lured a rival, and hit the ball strongly, but it hit the crossbar.
Emelec’s goal quickly came in an electric counterattack. The young Carlos Vera received the ball from the right and lifted a center that the Brazilian Leandro Euzebio sent to his own net by a bad rejection. The same Leandro made the foul against Mondaini in the end, it was then that Gaibor scored a goal from 11 steps to break the deadlock that Wagner had achieved after the first time.
The match was attended by almost 20,000 people.
