Recopa Sudamericana - First Leg

Independiente 2-1 Internacional
The Recopa Sudamericana pits the winners of the two intercontinental competitions from the previous year as Copa Sudamericana holders Independiente met last years Libertadores winners Internacional of Brazil in Avellaneda.

Inter took the lead and got an away goal eight minutes before the break when Leandro Damião slid in to put the ball over the advancing Hilario Navarro. Five minutes later Independiente were back in the game when defender Maxi Velázquez headed the home side level. The home side completed their comeback eighteen minutes from time when a Marcos Pérez free kick took a deflection and wrongfooted Muriel.

The second leg takes place at the Beira-Rio in two weeks time.
