One foot in the door

The goalscorer

Unión Española became the first ever Chilean team to win in La Paz as they defeated Bolivar 1-0 in the first leg of their Copa Libertadores qualifier.

A lone Fernando Cordero goal on fifteen minutes provided la furia roja with an invaluable advantage as they look to qualify for the continental tournament proper for the first proper since 2006. The return leg will be next Thursday local time. If los hispanos do make it through they will be in Group 4 alongside fellow Chileans Universidad Católica, Venezuelan side Caracas FC and Argentinean giants Vélez Sarsfield.

Goals to follow shortly.
