Highlights: Blooming 2-3 Newell’s

Newell’s Old Boys maintained their perfect record in this year’s Copa Sudamericana with a narrow 2-3 victory against Blooming in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

Iván Gómez’s beautiful strike kicked things off before Blooming fought back with an equaliser. A piece of tasty technique from Bruno Pittón forced an own-goal to put The Lepers back in the lead before Jorge Recalde slotted home a third after good work from wing-back Armando Méndez.

Blooming scored a consolation but it wasn’t enough to stop Gabriel Heinze’s side leaving Bolivia with all three points, their 4th win from 4 games.
