LDU take Recopa honours

Estudiantes 0-0 LDU Quito
LDU Quito wins 4-1 on points

Ecuador's LDU Quito retained the Recopa Sudamericana on Wednesday when they held Estudiantes of Argentina to a 0-0 draw in the second leg to record a 4-1 victory on points. Estudiantes who qualified as the winners of the 2009 Libertadores whilst LDU Quito made it after victory over Fluminense in the Copa Sudamericana.

It is LDU's fourth continental trophy in two years after they won the Libertadores Cup in 2008, the Recopa against Internacional last year plus the previous mentioned Sudamericana success. The match held in Quilmes, due to the unavailability of Estadio Jorge Luis Hirschi, was one-sided but Estudiantes were unable to find a way through the stubborn LDU Quito rearguard. Ultimately it was the double strike from Hernan Barcos a fortnight ago which saw LDU claim the title.
