Argentina's Colon clinch Libertadores spot with first major trophy

Jun 05, 2021

Beijing (China) June 5: Colon scored three goals in 28 second-half minutes to secure their first major trophy with a 3-0 victory over Racing Club in the final of Argentina's Professional League Cup on Friday.
Rodrigo Aliendro gave his team the lead just before the hour mark before Cristian Bernardi and Alexis Castro put the result beyond doubt at the San Juan del Bicentenario stadium.
The result means Colon will play in next year's Copa Libertadores - South America's premier club competition - for only the third time in their history.
It was nothing less than Colon deserved after they finished top of the 13-team Group A at the end of the regular season, four points ahead of Racing.
Argentina's top flight clubs will return to action on July 18 for the start of the Primera Division league season.
