Highlights: Newell’s 1-0 Santos

Newell’s Old Boys maintained their perfect record in the Copa Sudamericana thanks to a late Iván Gómez winner against Santos at the Estadio Marcelo Bielsa on Tuesday night.

Santos will feel unlucky after the match, having scorned a number of clearcut chances to score in the game while Gómez’s goal felt like the Lepers were destined to win again in the Sudamericana, a run that now stretches to 3 games, 3 wins, 5 goals scored and 0 conceded.

The continental form of Newell’s stands in stark contrast to the team’s league form and Heinze’s side are now in pole position to top Group E and qualify for the knockout stages, perhaps before the group stage ends.
