Newell's Pips Boca to Copa Libertadores Semis

MOST COMMENTED

Newell’s Old Boys edged six-time Copa Libertadores champion Boca Juniors 10-9 in a penalty shootout in Rosario on Wednesday to advance to the competition’s Semifinals. Elsewhere, Paraguayan champion Olimpia also advanced with a controversial 2-1 win against Brazilian giant Fluminese.

With the score tied 0-0 over two legs, the Argentine clubs entered into a shootout that Newell’s won thanks to goalkeeper Nahuel Guzman, who stopped Juan Manuel Martinez’s effort after 10 rounds of spot kicks. Former Liverpool winger Maxi Rodriguez then converted his penalty to send the Rosario-based club into the last four.

After the game, Newell’s coach Gerardo Martino criticized the poor organization of the tournament, complaining that it continues deep into the offseason. "There are four (Newell's) players whose contracts end (in June). I don't think it's fair not to be able to count on them (for the semifinals)," he told reporters. "Nor do I think it fair that they should not be able to emigrate. This is due to bad organization of the tournament."
