[LIBERTADORES CUP] Brazil's Fluminense joined surprise LDU Quito of Ecuador in the final of the 2008 Libertadores Cup when it scored three times in the last 20 minutes to beat defending champion Boca Juniors of Argentina, 3-1, on Wednesday and win their semifinal series, 5-3.

Forward Washington scored a 25-yard free kick, Boca defender Hugo Ibarra scored an own goal, and Dodo put the game away with a goal in stoppage time.

The victory snapped a 45-year streak during which Boca had won 12 series against Brazilian teams.

On Tuesday, LDU played to a 0-0 tie with Mexico's Club America that was enough to send it through to the final for the first time. The first leg ended in a 1-1 tie, so LDU won the series on the away goal.

America finished with nine players after Carlos Alberto Sanchez and Alejandro Arguello were sent off.
