Lanús suffer Libertadores reverse to Cerro Porteño

A nightmare 10 minutes after half-time cost Lanús dearly in the Copa Libertadores this evening, as the Argentine went down 3-1 to Cerro Porteño to suffer their first defeat in the competition in 2014.

Having matched the Paraguayans away from home in the first 45 minutes, the side directed by Guillermo Barros Schelotto conceded three goals directly after the break, putting a share of the points out of reach in their second Group 3 encounter.

Daniel Güiza opened the scoring just seconds following the restart, before playmaker Julio Dos Santos wasted no time in extending the advantage four minutes later.

Dos Santos added a further strike from the penalty spot with 55 minutes gone to complete Lanús' suffering, while Jorge Ortíz provided a late consolation for the Grana.

With one point from their opening two games, the side from the south of Greater Buenos Aires lie bottom of Group 3, led by O'Higgins of Chile (4 points) and followed by Cerro and Colombians Deportivo Cali, with three each.
