Copa Sudamericana 2011: U. de Chile 1-0 Nacional

Universidad de Chile carried its impressive Clausura form into the Copa Sudamericana as it defeated Uruguayan side, Nacional 1-0 at the Estadio Nacional with a goal courtesy of Eduardo Vargas.

It was the introduction of Diego Rivarola at half time that made the difference for the home side culminating in a sumptious backheel to set up Eduardo Vargas for the winner on sixty minutes. La U’s win was tarnished somewhat with the sending off of Nelson Rebolledo in the dying minutes after he picked up his second yellow card despite being on the field for only fifteen minutes.

The return leg will be played next Wednesday in Montevideo.
