San Lorenzo make confident start to Libertadores semi-final

San Lorenzo were in complete control as they thrashed Bolivar in the first leg of their Copa Libertadores, running out 5-0 winners over the hapless Bolivian team to take a giant leap towards the tournament's final.

A break for the World Cup meant more than two months had elapsed since the Buenos Aires side downed Cruzeiro to reach the last-four. But there was no sign of rustiness from the home team in the Nuevo Gasometro, as they dominated across the 90 minutes against a vastly outplayed opponent.

Mauro Matos got the Cuervo off the mark with a strong header in the opening minutes, before Emanuel Mas also used his head to turn in Leandro Romagnoli's free-kick. The victory was assured after the break, when Juan Mercier converted to further stretch the advantage.

But San Lorenzo did not rest, and Julio Buffarini smashed home an excellent long-ranged shot to make it 4-0. A second header from Mas rounded off the convincing victory for Edgardo Bauza's men in the final minutes of play.

The second leg will be played in Bolivian capital La Paz, on July 30.
