Lanús down River 3-1 to make Copa Sudamericana semi-final

Lanús booked their place in next year's Copa Libertadores with a 3-1 victory over River Plate in the quarter-finals of the Copa Sudamericana, sealing the side's spot in the last-four of the competition.

With the last place in the Libertadores guaranteed for the Argentine club that advances furthest in the Sudamericana, and fellow competitor Vélez already qualified, the side directed by Guillermo Barros Schelotto will therefore participate in the 2014 edition of South America's most important club competition.

Having been held to a 0-0 home draw in the first leg, Lanús struck first by taking the lead in the first 10 minutes. Diego González diverted Leandro Somoza's wayward shot into the net with a glorious back-heel, to leave River with an uphill climb.

The Núñez club required four goals to stay in the competition, a tough task for a team that has struggled to hit the net throughout the season.

And their fate was sealed 30 minutes in when Santiago Silva slid home a second, putting the tie out of reach for the Millonarios. Víctor Ayala scored the third leaving River with no chances, despite a last effort made by Teo Gutiérrez, who discounted with a goal eight minutes befere the match ended.

Lanús move on to the semi-finals of the Copa Sudamericana, where they will meet the winners of tomorrow's tie between Vélez Sarsfield and Brazilians Ponte Preta.
