5. LIBERTADORES CUP: Necaxa ends Sao Paulo's 29-match undefeated streak
Mexico's Necaxa beat Sao Paulo, 2-1, on Wednesday in Libertadores Cup play to
end the Brazilian champion's 29-game undefeated streak, which included 13 games
in last year's Brazilian league play, 14 in this year's Paulista championship
and two in Libertadores Cup play.
Sao Paulo goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni missed a penalty kick in the loss at
Necaxa, which got its goals from Brazilian Kleber Boas and Uruguyan
Juan Salgueiro. Necaxa leads Group 2 after winning its first three games.
Brazil's Flamengo qualified for the knockout stage with a 1-0 win over Brazil's
Mexico's Club America fell, 3-1, at Argentina's Banfield, whose Dario
Cvitanich scored after an 80-yard run. Banfield had lost to Club America in
Mexico City, 4-0, two weeks ago.
