5-1: ‘Manita’ from Sao Paulo to Binational in his farewell to Libertadores

Sao Paulo, already eliminated and with World Cup winner Dani Alves among the starters, said goodbye to the Copa Libertadores this Tuesday in the current edition with a 5-1 win over the Peruvian champion Binational at the close of Group D.

The Brazilian goals were scored by Vítor Bueno, Brenner, Pablo, twice, and the Ecuadorian Robert Arboleda, while Jean Deza discounted for the Binacional.

The three-time champion of the Libertadores, despite not having the public that usually cheers him on in the stands of the imposing Morumbí, went from the beginning to seek victory to say goodbye with honor to the current tournament and after six minutes he opened the scoring with a Long distance goal from Vítor Bueno.

Then, in a combination of Tche Tche and Brenner, the paulista tricolor could increase and when it seemed that it was going to attack, the reaction of the whole of the Peruvian city of Desaguadero came.

But just when the Peruvians were playing the best, despite the disadvantage, in a gush in the small area in which Vítor Bueno and Igor Gomes participated, the scorer Brenner ended up hollowing the ball to make it 2-0 at 34 minutes.

The Binacional did not lower their guard and in the 39th minute the newly entered Deza got rid of Tche Teche's mark and discounted with a beautiful goal from afar for the visitors, who went to rest encouraged and hoping to reverse the situation.

However, shortly after the start of the second half, Igor Gomes enabled Pablo to convert another goal on the night and increase the lead.

Before the visitors reacted, 'el Sampa' increased the score almost immediately when after a header from Pablo that crashed into the crossbar, Arboleda took advantage of the rebound to score the fourth.

In the 84th minute, in a play by the recently entered Toró, Pablo took advantage of it inside the area and with his second staff he sentenced it 5-1 in favor of the homeowners who were closer to the sixth than the Binacional of the second.

The Colombian Santiago Tréllez was one of the variants of São Paulo coach Fernando Diniz, who due to injuries could not count on Hernanes and Spanish Juanfran for this match.

For the visitors, coach Javier Arce made some variations, including the entry of Uruguayan striker Sebastián Gularte in the place of Colombian Johan Arango.
