Copa Sudamericana - CONCACAF gets 2 into Quarter Finals

CONCACAF got two clubs into the Quarter Finals of the Copa Sudamericana, Mexican Champion Pachuca and Toluca. Costa Rican club LD Alajuelense was rudely dumped by Chilean club, Colo Colo after a major thumping to the sound of a 7-2 defeat. and a 11-2 total goals aggregate. Getting two clubs into the Quarter Finals is pretty good, hopefully they will be able to advance farther.

In action tonight, Santos of Brasil face a huge uphill climb as they are down 3-0 to San Lorenzo of Argentina. Even with the match at home, a 3 goal deficit requires a huge miracle. Defending Brasilian Champions, Corinthians are level with Lanus at 0-0 and face a tough battle at Estadio Lanus.

On Thursday night, defending champion Boca Juniors face the return leg of their series with Nacional, with an uphill battle as they trail the Uruguayan side 2-1 after the first half of their home/away series. Fellow Argentinean side, River Plate, are looking to build off of their 3-1 victory over Boca on Sunday to rally past Brasilian club Atletico Paranaense, who won the first match 1-0 at Monumental de Nunez stadium.
