Copa Sudamericana week 11

Independiente 1-0 LDU Quito
3-3 on points, LDU Quito advances on goal difference

The Premier Sports TV cameras were present to witness holders Independiente make an exit at their first stage of the competition after failing to overcome a two goal first leg deficit against 2009 champions LDU Quito of Ecuador. The home side made nine changes from the team beaten in Quito a fortnight ago as they went for all out attack in order to try and progress into the last eight. The only goal of the game came on the stroke of half time when a deflected shot from Leonel Núñez found the back of the net. In the second half Independiente pushed for the second goal that would take the tie to a penalty shoot out but the LDU Quito defence was strong and frustration got the better of the home side when Fernando Godoy was shown a straight red card three minutes from time for a poor challenge on Claudio Bieler.
LDU Quito will now face the winner of the tie between São Paulo of Brazil and Libertad of Paraguay in the quarter finals.
